There have been many posts about how basic the dimension options in Layout are. But my chief concern is about intuitiveness.
When you select points to set a dimension you next have to select an orientation (horizontal, vertical, off axis, etc). Dimensions are chiefly used in 2D representations where you mostly want horizontal or vertical dimensioning. But far too often getting LO to give you what you want proves a real hassle, jumping around from one thing you don’t want to another, seemingly never finding the one you do. Or that’s how it can seem.
Even now, after using it for some years, I somehow think I should be able to use the Shift key to lock an orientation or the arrow keys to determine it. These feel intuitive because they work the way SU works. But they don’t work in LO. Does anyone know if they could in theory or is there some software limitation that means computer will always say no?
Does this bug anyone else?
