Ii think this option existed in my old beloved Generic Cadd. It allowed placing dimensions with multiple points rather than just two. The case example is a shelving unit. Vertical standards with multiple shelves and such. The design I’m working on has close to 30 measurements. The GCadd would allow you to click the first point and you could keep clicking and it would just keep marking how far from the original point you were without having to add 30 dimensions.
I don’t want to have dimensions between the various shelves because most woodworkers know, you want to measure from one point, not multiple. Otherwise minor thickness changes in your materials will add up and you will have a bad day.
Anyway…thoughts are welcomed.
