I have a view set up, I want to dimension from one grid line to the next. to show both grid lines will make the view rediculously huge however (its only a 1:10 detail). As soon as one grid isn't shown in view the dimension disappears. Can appreciate why this is the case (you cant see it so why annotate it) but i want intelligent dimensioning within my details. so a dim that says "XXXmm to gird line X". Just incase the grid should move and it can remove the potential for human error.

you could just extend your view and then click the break line icon on the crop region and then adjust it so you just see the one grid line and the other detail stuff you want. You can then dimension across the broken view and it will adjust if said grid is moved

Thanks marmiketin1. after looking into this was one way I also explored. It doesn't tick all the boxes though as in the broken part of the view you still have to show the grid in question and it will be seen across my whole sheet. even if you pull in the crop of the broken view you still need to show the grid line other wise the dimension vanishes. its something I've spent the better part of today trying to come up with a work around :-s

The only other way I cana think to do this is to create a family or tag that uses a shared reporting parameter used in a dimension on your overal plans between your grid lines. Have the shared parameter report the dimension to a label and then you could just have a leader pointing to your visible grid and within the label it could also have text indicating what the other end of dimension goes to
