Press Enter twice to dimension the object automatically instead of picking points A and B.

Patrick Sayo, a standards compliance and training officer, sends us a quick tip on dimensioning objects by selecting them. "When you enter a dimension command, such as DLI (for Dimlinear), press Enter twice to dimension the object automatically instead of picking points A and B."

Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: Often, the two points we need to dimension to are the endpoints of an object. Using the Select Object option can speed up your dimensioning. Start a dimension command and instead of picking your first dimension point, press Enter and select the object.
