CHANGING WHICH END OF LINE IS MOVED USING DIMENSIONS


When changing a dimension of an auto-dimensioned line, how do I get the opposite
end of the line to be the end that moves instead of the default end?
Thanks,
Ron

On the Sketching tab in the Relate block choose the Lock constraint and
select the endpoint of the line you want to remain fixed.
Keep in mind that Maintain Relationships must be active under the Tools tab.

"Lock" one end.
It's the relation that looks like a padlock, and then select JUST ONE end point,
if you select the line itself, it will lock the horizontal (and length?)
