I am quire new to Revit, but am having a major problem with temporary dimensions.

Despite the fact that i have set the option to "Faces", it still does temporary dimensions to centerlines.

To make things worse, often the 'move witness line" grip doesn't show and usually when it does it does not move off the center.

 

Any thoughts? Temporary dimensions are practically worthless to me unless i can get them to come from the face of the wall.

 

Thanks.

Strange - works for me.  Are you sure you are setting temporary dimension - not dimension.

 

In addition, you can always click on the temporary blue gip and it will cycle through the location options available.  This works on any of the blue grips.

Sorry i did not get back to this for so long. Attached are two screenshots. One shows the temporary dimension settings set to faces. The other is an example.

I started a brand new file from the stock template for this example. Set the Temp Dimensions.

 

Drew one "Generic 8 wall" then a wing wall.

Note that when selected, the temp dimension of the wing wall is to the CENTERLINE of the base wall. In addition, THERE ARE NO witness line adjustment options for the dimension at the length of the wing wall.

 

Any ideas?

I see from the black screen that you are a CAD user so your colors are different.

 

Is the 4' dimension temporary?  It appears to be... click on the orange dot at the center of the wall - that would be blue if you had kept the white screen.

I found the white background a little hard on the eyes, but yes, it is a temporary dimension. I can drag the wall end as you suggest and it snaps to the wall face, but then Revit seems to do its join and it goes back to the centerline!!!

Try going to manage tab, select additional settings, select temporary dim, select faces of core., OK. If you click the blue tabs, it should cycle to the core faces.

does anyone else get their temporary dimensions always defaulting to something off screen? if im zoomed in on a plan, and selecting items, it alway picks a reference out of my view screen, and if I move to include that reference in my view, it picks something else off my screen again to draw its temporary dimension from..
