# Diagonal dimension?

N/A

How do I create a diagonal dimension? For example, how would I dimension the diagonal
distance from the lower left hand corner of a rectangle to the upper right hand
corner?

2 options.
Using the Smart Dimension command, pick your two corners (must get the
endpoint indicator for both) and before you place the dimension, hold down
the Shift key.
Using the Dimension Between command, change the Orientation option on the
ribbon bar to "By 2 Points" and select your two corners (must get the
endpoint indicator for both).
