    Default Dimensioning to Cable Trays Cut by View

    I would like to add some dimensions to cable trays in both plan views and section views. It seems like I am only allowed to dimension to the center of a cable tray and cannot dimension to the edges. Has anyone else run across this problem or found a solution?

    Set the Detail Level to Fine and turn off the Cable Trays subcategories "Drop" and "Rise".

    That did not work, perhaps there is a dimension setting I am missing.

    Here's what mine looks like:

    I'm able to dimension from any face of the Cable Tray. Does yours appear differently?

    You are right! It is working now...Hmmm but I've tweaked so many things in the past hour I'm not sure which worked Ahhhh. using Aligned works but Linear seems to lock on the center-line...Thanks.
