Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Styling dimensions, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut.
- [Narrator] Chapter 3-08, the last one in this chapter. … We are looking at adding some style to these dimensions. … Now you might notice that on the length sketch up file … there's little orange backgrounds to these two dimensions. … That's because they've become unlinked. … So just right click on each dimension … and then relink it to the model, … and then you'll find that that little … orange background will go away. … For some reason it's just got attached, … but you can reattach it, … and then it references the model again, … and then all will be good. … I will zoom in a bit so we can see what we're working with. … So when we get a situation like this, … it's never a good idea to have … the leaders running all the way from the points … even though they're referencing the points. … Things that you can do are to thin these down … as much as possible. … So you can do that by selecting it, … double clicking, double clicking again, … you want to get it right down until you get to the line. …
