snap spacing of dimensions

Can anyone give me information on the snap tracking of dimension spacing.

start dimensioning and when you go over a dimension you get two tracking points one on each side of the existing dimension so you can place your new dimension a specified distance apart. what turns this on and off and what controls the spacing.

Dimstyle (DDIM) -> Baseline spacing.

(is used by dimbaseline command and also dimspace command).

 Or you use Object snap Tracking (F11).

You can find the answer yourself easily.

Start searching for your keyword (for example dimspace),
then you will see 3 other help pages where this can find too.

If you are using the right keywords (dimension & space) you will find them.

And what did you find out? It would be nice for others if you share your knowledge.

Do you work with the plain (Vanilla) AutoCAD or do you use a vertical product (e.g. Autodesk Mechanical or similar)?
