How do the dim of rethinking plane? = Dim accumulated an axis

Image example of the dim that I need:

Ordinate dimensions might be what you are looking for.

Ordinate dimensions measuring from 0.0, I need from a variable. Besides the ordinate dimensions have no arrow.

Is simpler, it's a dim that only has an arrow and the text is aligned to one side.

Thank you.

You can move the reference point of ordinate dimensions:
- select ordinate dimension(s)
- move blue reference point at absolute position (0,0) to desired relative zero point

Dimension entities that look exactly as shown in your figure are not supported by QCAD.

Is there a way to set the ordinate 0,0 to a relative location before drawing dimensions so we don't have to move it after drawing the dimensions?

I need not be identical to the image, but the levels I tried were really bad. Is there a way to customize your appearance?

Thank you

No, sorry.

### One possible solution

I want to know whether it is possible to place a text that shows the value of the coordinate (in x).

If this is possible, Drawing a block to the levels accumulated in x and one for the levels accumulated in y

Maybe you can use scripts?

With blocks and/or scripts this can be possible?

With a QCAD 3 script, this is certainly possible.

Have a look at the example script in scripts/Examples/DrawExamples/ExThreePoints

This script lets the user click a position and then adds three points beside each other at the chosen position.
