Hi guys, great forums here. We have been using Revit for roughly a month now and are having trouble dimensioning to the core (wood stud) portion of our walls if there is an angle involved. The witness line will snap to the exterior finish, interior gyp. finish, and wall centerline. Is there any way to fix this?

when you click on the dimension tool some options will come up on top, under "Prefer" choose center of core from the drop down menu. HTH

Here is a pdf of where we would like it to snap. I tried setting the dimensions to prefer center but was unable to get the dimension I was after. Thank you for your quick post though elda.

ok, I see what you mean, yes there is a problem with that and hoping The Factory will fix it in 9.0, it is very annoying indeed! in the past I used drafting lines (small ones in the corner) and snapped to them, it is not a good solution when you have a large number of angled walls though...

Another way is to go ahead and create the floor to your o.s. core (assuming you would do it that way anyway) You can then tab to the floor corner. When adding lines to dim to, I use the pick tool to overlay a light drafting line over the core line then drag the ends to meet at the corner.
