Breaking dimension lines NX9

Experimenter

Hi all

 

I have move recently to NX9 (previously I worked with Catia V5 several years). When drafting, I can not find how to break a dimension line, I tried settings ->Line/arrow->Break but it doesn't exist in NX9, or I am not able to find it.

 

Just in case, I am referring to breaking dimension lines like in the attachment.

 

Thanx in advance

And is there any way to break the lines manually?

This can be achieved in NX9 using user defined symbols

 

Menu->Insert-> Symbol->User Defined-> Select any of the GAP type-> Select Add to drafting object button->Select the dimension to which the gap needs to be added->Click on standalone symbol button->Pick the desired location

 

Refer attached AVI.

Thank you so much.

 

Quite tedious method but seems to be the only one. In my opinion, a remarkable defect on NX9.

 

Anyway, thanks for the answer, very useful for me.

Welcome to 2013. If you are stuck on NX 9, there is a journal here that will remove most of the tedium of placing dimension breaks.
