About Modifying Dimension Text

After you create a dimension, you can move, rotate, or replace the dimension text.

You can move the text to a new location or back to its home position, which is the
position defined by the current dimension style. In the following illustration, the
home position is above and centered on the dimension line.

You can move dimension text to the left, right, or center along the dimension line
or to any position inside or outside the extension lines. A quick and simple way to
do this is by using grips. If you move text up or down, the current vertical alignment
of the text relative to the dimension line is not changed, so the dimension and extension
lines are modified accordingly. The following illustration shows the result of moving
text down and to the right. The text remains centered vertically in relation to the
dimension line.

Use Dimension Text Grips

Hover over a dimension text grip to quickly access the following functionality:

  • Stretch. This is the default grip behavior:
    • If the text is positioned on the dimension line, Stretch moves the dimension line farther away or closer to the object being dimensioned.
      Use command line prompts to specify a different base point or copy the dimension line.

    • If the text is positioned away from the dimension line, with or without a leader,
      Stretch moves the text without moving the dimension line.
  • Move with Dim Line. Positions text on the dimension line, and moves the dimension line farther away or
    closer to the object being dimensioned (no additional prompts).
  • Move Text Only. Positions the dimension text without moving the dimension line.
  • Move with Leader. Positions the dimension text with a leader line to the dimension line.
  • Above Dim Line. Positions the dimension text above the dimension line (left of the dimension line
    for vertical dimensions).
  • Center Vertically. Positions the dimension text so that the dimension line cuts through the vertical
    center of the text.
  • Reset Text Position. Positions the dimension text back to its default (or “homeâ€‌) position based on the
    active dimension style.
