    dimensions

    Does anyone know how to align these individual dimensions at their dimension lines?
    Ordinate dimensions do not work for me as I cannot add/erase a dimension to/from existing chain dimensions.
    Grip edit in dimension is giving me a hard time also.
    Revit is 2 cents vs CAD a million, unless I am missing something.

    Thank you!

    The best you can do is eyeball it. The issue you're having with the dimension chain has to do with something isn't aligned correctly.

      ...
      They are not aligned at all, they are individual dimension, that's why I want to align them.
      I don't want to use ordinate dimension... so no chain dimension...just individual dimensions, but I want the aligned.

        Maybe you should post how you want them to look because I'm not getting it.

          Revit will allign 2 dimensions by snapping them together IF they are parallel.
          As David mentiones above it looks like those 2 dimensions are not parallel, so they will never snap together. Best you can do is eyeball them.

          But othern then that is looks like you are showing an image from AutoCAD, so what are you trying to do exactly?

            CRapai, please see attached.
            Robin, the dimensions are aligned, why would you think they are not? The image is from Revit, see attached.
            I was able to aligned them using a detail line over dimension line and than moved them together to the other dimension line: a lot of work...
            Again, how do you eyeball them?
            Thank you!

              Strange, whenever I make dimensions like that, if I move the dimension close to another it snaps to it. Not a problem on my side. *Shrug*

                If you don't like Revit....then stick with Autocad. While the rest of us are designing stuff of awesome you can be happily creating dimensions in multiple drawings and hoping you remembered to reload all of your xrefs.

                  Didn't say aligned, said parallel. And if they were parallel you would be able to snap the dimensions together or use a chain dimension. Not being able to do that means they are not parallel. So you are probably trying to dimension 3 things that are not parallel to eachother.

                  Your black background and the way things look (the white things, whatever they are) made me thing I was looking at AutoCAD. Did you by any change import those white things from AutoCAD? If so, I think there is your problem with a none parallel line you try to dimension.
