Diameter Dimension

Available in: FREE, Plus, Pro and Architectural

This command creates a diameter dimension for an arc or circle. Select the 'Diameter Dimension' button Diameter Dimension button and the Ribbon changes to show the current dimension properties. You can change any of these settings whilst you are creating the dimension. The command prompt reads:

Give Arc/Circle:

Click on the arc or circle to dimension. The diameter dimension is now attached to the cursor displaying the dimension. The command prompt reads:

Give Dimension Position:

As you move the cursor the dimension slides around. You will see that if the cursor positon is outside the circle then the dimension line extends to the cursor position and the dimension text is orientated horizontally. If the cursor is inside the circle the dimension text is always parallel to and centred on the dimension line. Simply click to accept the position of the dimension.
