Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Continue and baseline, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Announcer] As usual, we're staying…in the 04_dimensioning.dwg file for this particular chapter.…And you can see where I did the QDIM command…on our little object, here, in the previous video.…Now I'm going to delete all of the dimensions…that I've placed using the QDIM command like that.…I'm just going to hit the delete key and get rid of those.…And what I'm going to do now, is show you how…to use 'continue' and 'baseline' in AutoCAD Dimensioning.…Now these are on the 'annotate' tab…in the 'dimensions' panel, so make sure you get…to the 'annotate' tab on the ribbon.…
