Can someone show what we're talking about here please? I went to look at the link, but am unable to do so.
this is not the best example,
but somehow I can´t find my thread about the DIN 1356-1 anymore, that had examples.
You can see that the first dimension base line has a defined distance from the drawing, and the other dimension lines too have defined distances from the next lines. The extension lines have a defined length above the base line, and below the base line.
When I have several dimension lines with reference points inside my floorplan, I have to first snap the reference point, and then go back and either create a construction line or snap to the neighbouring dimension line that I already put in for the base point of the helper line, and THEN snap onto the neighbouring dimension line to place my new dimension line at the right height. I do find that a bit tedious.
So, it would be nice to have dimension lines that have a defined length for the helper line above the dimension base line and below the base line, so that I only have to
1) place the point that the dimension needs to go through, outside of the floorplan
2) pick the reference points that I want to have measured
I don´t think that this is an unreasonable request to have that feature for architects (I dare say that dimensioning floor plans can get a bit more complex than machine parts?), and it would add a lot of professionalism to the Architecture package.
