Dimension issue

Question

Good morning all,

I'm having an issue with dimension tool. I'm drawing a door and need to measure parts. When I click and drag cursor the dimension is fine until it touches the other line, then is becomes a larger dimension, but once I drag back from line it goes back to normal. It's very frustrating and I hope there is an easy fix. It was working perfectly earlier and I'm not sure what i did to make this happen. I'm using VW 2014 updated.

 

Thank you for any help.

John

Or even better what Snaps do you have active? How far out are you zoomed?  It is quite possible (as Jonathan suggested) that if you have the grid snap on that you are snapping to the next grid point. Or if you don't have grid snap on, that you are getting close enough to a different type of snap that is grabbing that point instead of the point you are trying for.

Good morning,

 

Thank you for your help and yes, I did have grid snap active, duh. I don't normally design in front view so I had a bit of a learning curve (custom doors) 

 

Take care,

 

John
