How do I draw a double headed arrow?

Post by maddie111 » Thu Apr 30, 2020 2:43 pm

I would like to draw a line with arrow heads at each end. I need it have a label next to it stating the minimum height of the structure I am drawing. My drawing is not to scale so the standard dimension arrow doesn't seem to be appropriate

You can enter any label for a dimension. Simply use the override edit box in the options tool bar to specify the label while drawing the dimension:

Or use the property editor later to change the label of an existing dimension entity:
