Dimensioning corner
SoftPlan Version:
2014

Hi Bill,

 

  1. Is it possible to dim a corner without drawing a line? I tried the extension tool but it kept going out at an angle.
  2. Is there a way to have a cross opening not show the crossing lines?

 

 

 

Thanks!

For dimensioning a corner like you are showing there I will draw a Paint Break line and then run an extension from the Paint Break. That way all that prints is the normal extensions an dimensions since paint breaks do not print.

A cross opening by definition has a cross in it so no you can't remove it. If you don't like the cross then use an arch and select the square top arch if you need to show the fireplace in 3D or cross sections. If you want the arch to display with solid lines rather than dashed lines you can uncheck "dashed" on the display tab while editing the arch.
