Dimensioning in view ports

Recommended Posts

How do I dimension an arc or circle in a view port without going back to the drawing area? It doesn't seem to pick them up

Double click or right click on the viewport.

Select "Annotation" from the Edit Viewport dialog box.

Dimension away!

Click on "Exit Viewport" when finished.

Katie, I think you missed DeanF's point. I know what he speaks of, because when in a viewport, arcs and circles don't get snaped by the dimension tool.

What I have to do is trace an arc or circle over the model in the viewport, dimension it, then delete the temporary arc or circle. Kind of a lengthy process.
