Center Line Dimension Technique?

Does anyone have a good technique to dimension this centerline to the backline?

    Create a virtual sharp from the center line and the top horizontal line. That will give you a point, then select the virtical line you pointed to

    John, thanks for the reply.. Sadly it will not allow me to grab a centerline to form the virtual sharp... Any additional ideas?

    uhh, sorry I thought you could, I suppose you will need to create that virtual sharp in a sketch, inside the part studio.

    then show sketches in the drawing

    Yep, you are correct. Again, thanks for the help.. I just found the show sketches feature in drawings, will save a ton of time for me :-)...

    I know it's not ideal, but it should get us by until they introduce proper parametric sketching in drawings  :)
