So.....Can this function be used to fix drawings I've already done and group dimensions and set spacings.


It would be an interactive process. You can use the "arrange dimensions" tool in the dimension group to help.


 

 

 

I believe that the "Arrange Dimensions" feature was introduced to ST6 and is not available in ST5.

The only You could do was to move the dimensions using the Auto Snap function but You cann't set them to be permanent afterwards.

@hawcad, I missed the using ST5 post. Even then I wouldn't know when the arrange dims function became available. Thanks for pointing it out and your encyclopedic knowledge.

Hi @bshand

 

 

doesn't matter at all. 

 

 

But regarding this issue a question to @OzDamo:

 

Can or wil You upgrade to a more current version of SE?

There are many enhancements in the area of drafting which will make Your drawing life easier.

Re upgrading......I Wish.

 

I've just started with an engineering firm, who for stability reasons, have stayed with ST5. We often bemoan the lack of features from the later versions. So yes, I'm stuck with it for the time being.

 

I'm happy to of moved on from Microstation though. If I have to go back to that in the future, it will be hard.

 

cheers
