Modifying a dimension feature's geometry

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

  1. Click the Edit tool Edit Tool on the Editor toolbar and double-click the feature you want to edit.
  2. Position the pointer over the vertex that corresponds to the aspect of the dimension's geometry you want to modify.
  3. Drag and drop the vertex on the desired location. In addition to modifying the dimension line height, you can also modify the begin dimension point, the end dimension point, and the dimension text placement.

    As you move the pointer, the dimension feature dynamically updates itself so you can see how the feature will look after you have modified its geometry. The original feature will also be visible until you choose to finish the sketch.

  4. Right-click anywhere on the map and click Finish Sketch.
