Dimensioning to Midpoints

To dimension to a midpoint of a linear edge in a drawing:

  1. Click Smart Dimension Tool_Smart_Dimensions_Relations.gif on the Dimensions/Relations toolbar, or click Tools > Dimensions > Smart.
  2. Right-click the edge whose midpoint you want to dimension, and click Select Midpoint.
  3. Select the second entity to dimension.
  4. Use rapid dimensioning to place evenly spaced dimensions. Alternatively, move the pointer outside of the rapid dimension selector to place the dimension.
    You can also dimension to midpoints when you are adding baseline dimensions or ordinate dimensions. Select the baseline or zero ordinate. Then follow step 2 to dimension to midpoints as needed.
