Changing the Attachment Point or Length of Dimension Extension Lines

To change the attachment point or length of dimension extension lines:

  1. Select a dimension.

    Handles dim_handle_extension_attach.gif are displayed at the attachment end of the extension lines. The pointer changes to pointer_Dim_Handle_Extension.gif when it is over a handle.

  2. Drag a handle to the desired position or to a vertex.

    If you choose a vertex, the default extension line gap is used. In sketches, the value of the dimension changes to reflect the new attachment point.
