Associating Dimensions with Elements

An association point in a dimension element is one that is associated with a point in the dimensioned element(s). Association points are most useful for points that are "connected" to the element being dimensioned, such as dimension endpoints.

Note: The origin of Shared cells or the vertices of a multi-line can also be associated with points on other elements.

Association Lock

To place association points, Association Lock and Snap Lock must be on. (Turning Association Lock on automatically turns Snap Lock on.) Dimensions must be placed as dimension elements to have association points. Association Lock can be set in the tool setting controls for dimensioning tools as well as in the Settings menu's Locks submenu.
