How to create continuous floorplan interior dimension string without leader lines

How do you create floorplan continuous interior dimension strings without leader lines in Layout?


I thought he was referring to the vertical ones…

You mean the extension lines? That would be easy enough by setting the extension line color to be totally transparent.

In that case you remove all lines, not only vertical ones

What do you mean? You don’t have to remove all lines. You can hide only the extension lines.

I didn’t noticed that there was a length option, I set length to 0 and they disappear too … Thanks for the tip

You can adjust the gap between the anchor points and the start of the extension lines. I didn’t do that in my example, though. I made the extension lines transparent as I suggested in my first reply to you.

Yes, I tried both ways and it worked. Thanks for the tip

Thank you, I guess that’s the way to do it. FYI here is an autocad example of what I need to do. It’s a common drafting technique–would be nice if layout did it more automatically.
