Creating an aligned dimension feature

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

  1. Click a dimension feature template in the Create Features window.
  2. Click the Aligned tool Aligned on the Create Features window.
  3. Click the map at the start dimension point. As you move the pointer, the new dimension dynamically draws itself with your pointer location as the end dimension point.
  4. Click the map at the end dimension point. The new dimension continues to dynamically draw itself; however, the start and end dimension points are fixed, and the height of the dimension line changes as you move the pointer.
  5. Click the map where you want the dimension line to be. With the Aligned construction method, the dimension line is parallel to the baseline.
