Creating Dimensions Between Two Points

  1. Click Smart Dimension Tool_Smart_Dimensions_Relations.gif (Dimensions/Relations toolbar) or Tools > Dimensions > Smart.
  2. Click one point.
  3. Click the other point.
  4. Move the pointer to show the dimension preview.
  5. Set the value in the Modify box and click button_Save_Modify.gif.
