Ability to Trim & Extend Dimensions lines- Suggest>MS

Post by DKNTEC » Thu Jul 19, 2007 4:22 pm

In old AutoCAD 12 DOS with InCAD 12, we could simply trim or extend a dimension line to a line (same as doing with a simple line), and the dimension text would update accordingly.
This was very handy & I used it frequently for editing dims as a design evolved.
I realize this was a AutoCAD command, not Microsurvey's.
It was not in MSCAD2004 or 2005's CAD engines.
Now we have to delete the old dim, do a new one, and then redo any text location adjustments or other override mods.
Would be nice to see it in MSCAD2008!

This has been added in the new IntelliCAD engine, so you will be able to trim and extend dimensions in MSCAD 2008.
