QUESTION: Dear Sir, in Qdim command using baseline option,can i move vertical dimension text above the Extension line. also i don't need dimension line. sample image is attached.  thank you

ANSWER: Mohan:

Yes, this is correct.  It works very much like the DIMORDINATE command.  It appears to work with the current UCS, so you will have to have a different UCS for each item you dimension this way in a drawing.

Have a wonderful and prosperous year 2013.

QUESTION: Thank your Sir . Text is moved above the extension line. i also want to remove the dimension line. i tired through ddim dialog box from option dim1 and dim2 but it is not working

Answer
Mohan:

Try the DIMSD1 AND DIMSD2 system variables (set to 1 or ON).  Then update the dimension.

Let me know how that goes.  Wait a second - your using ordinate dimensioning.  So, that's not a dimension line, that's an extension line.  So both DIMSE1 and DIMSE2 have to be on or set to 1.

Expertise

I can address all 2-D questions and some 3-D questions. I do programming in AutoLISP if it doesn`t involve solid modeling. I can also address menu customization issues and can help you find answers to questions I can`t answer by taking your question directly to Autodesk via their newsgroups.

Experience

I used to do electronic and mechanical design for a flat panel monitor manufacturer, and now I do architectural drafting for an architect. I did and do AutoLISP and menu customization and take pride in making my lisp routines to do the work exactly the way the client likes them done.

Publications
I had a routine published in CADENCE magazine (no longer in publication and taken over by CADALYST). Some of my routines are published on my website at http://my.sterling.net/~bdeshawn
