Driving measurement from a centre line

N/A

Hi,
can anyone advise me how to create a driving measurement from the centre line of
one element to the centre of another. Every time I try this I just get a driven
measurement.
thanks,
Richard

Richard,
Center lines created using the Center Line tool are always driven by the
geometry they reference and as such cannot have driving dimensions attached.
The solution is to either dimension to the centerpoint of your geometry
(e.g. circle centerpoint, line midpoint, etc...) or create a centerline
using the line tool and dimensioning to it.
