How can I set the wall dimensions to face to face instead of centerline.

See attached examples with workaround and dimensions in meters and cms.

OK, in the thread called "temporary dimensions and wall centerlines", dated from Octobre 2009, Typhoon tells Wohlfie how to work around the problem by setting the temp dim options to dimension wall faces and then convert the temporary dimension to permanent. How come you can't do it directly is a mystery until someone points out a way.

Wohlfie tries and it doesn't work for him. Maybe because it only works after you change the setting and then only when you create a new wall. And even then you still have to call up the temp dim and click on it to make it permanent.

Anyway Wwhub comes along and says: "Oh, if you just click the dim handle it will cycle through the face and centerline options.". You do however have to go to edit witness lines and add a line if you want to get the second face of the wall.

So there you are; just click on the blue handle. Not obvious, but manageable and not all that tedious.

Just use the auto dimension.  Place your dimensions choosing entire walls and use the pulldown to choose what you want to dimension to ...wall centerline, core centerline, faces of wall or faces of core....

Hi WWHub

 

I owe you one for your 2009 reply to my 2011 question. Solved the problem.

That feature which lists related issues tackled in the past is really helpful.

Now your 2011 reply is even better.

 

" Place your dimensions choosing entire walls and use the pulldown to choose

what you want to dimension to..."

 

It works equally well with entire walls and individual references. You still have

to use your 2009 suggestion of clicking on the blue handle when it automatically

chooses the wrong face of the wall.
