coordinate dimensioning for series of elements

N/A
Hello,

Can you tell me how to use coordinate dimensioning on a series of elements easily. For example, if I have many rectangles in a horizontal array (like 5 on x-axis and only 1 deep on the y-axis), how can I start the dimensioning on the rightmost corner of the rightmost rectangle and then have each vertical line of each rectangle be dimensioned from that point without having to click on each point.

Thanks,
Bob

Bob,
Coordinate dimensions require manual selection of the keypoints to place the
dimensions.
It is not automated.
Your case is a simple case where you only have vertical lines.
But most cases would have lines, arcs, circles.
Automating this would cause as much cleanup work as manually placing in more
complex cases.
