Re: Dimension looking for information

To clarify, looking to do two things regarding attache drawing.
1- show dimension as 17'-3 7/8" instead o 17?-3 7/8?
Also would like to shorten the dimension extension line so do not appear as touching the actual construction lines.

Re: Dynamic Block Creation

Thank you for your reply.
In looking at the dining table example, it would seem that once I figure out how to create a configurable HM frame and door in the library with the desired options, I will mostly have a pre-insertion dynamic block.
