    CL dimension symbol

    I'm using CL dimension symbols to show centre to centre dimensions on my columns.
    It works with all columns except C shaped profile ones. The family is OOTB, centreline reference planes are pinned, named, define origin... same as other column families.
    Anyone know why is that?

    I think it is because the family is modeled so that the axis of the centroid of C section is at the vertical center reference plane of the family. That axis is always shifted to the side of the web. If you want the dimension to snap to the center of the width, you would need to put an additional reference plane in the family, weak or strong reference, at the center of the "bf" dimension.
