Re: Inserting Model Items

I have a second question: Is there any way to "break" the leader from a

Right click the dim; click properties and pick "foreshortened radii"...

What happened to the rest of my post? Was it the size?

Probably an attachment. Binaries aren't allowed. Some suppliers allow them anyway, perhaps some strip them out, and some kill the message. I never saw your original. Jerry Steiger Tripod Data Systems "take the garbage out, dear"

Here's the rest:
While I certainly wouldn't want to manually dimension my drawings, I really hate the way a lot of the dimensions come in with the extension lines snapped to the other end of an edge/line. Having to move the end points so that the gap set in Options is there is a real time consumer. Besides, not having a gap looks like crap! Any suggestions or handy, dandy tricks? I realize dim placement in one's model helps.

All I can say, is I hate it too. I haven't figured out any workarounds.

Yeah it seems like SolidWorks could be a little more intuitive about this when it places dimensions in a particular view.

I haven't investigated this feature yet, so this is only a comment. Have you looked into Annotation Views? Might be something there.
