I have had to revise a part that someone else created at some earlier date.
They used the ordinate dimensions, which works perfectly and looks good.
I have had to add some holes to this part, but can not figure out how to add more dimensions
to the existing ones, outside of deleting the dimensions and dimensioning them all over again.
How do I add more ordinate dimensions to the existing?
As always, thank you so much for educating me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As long as you have the target starting point you should be able to just select the view and the destination point and it should reference back to the already existing target point.

Thank you. I didn't realize that for the first new hole, I had to select the center rather than an edge like with the remaining holes.
It depends on whether they were placed as an Ordinate Dimension Set or as independent Ordinate Dimensions. If it's a set (when you click on one it selects all of them), then right click on any one of them and choose Add Member. If they are independent, use Scott's method.
