Adding constraints to sketch entities in drawings?

pete_7pete_7 Member Posts: 3 PRO
I would like to add a vertical centerline to a drawing, then dimension from that. It appears there is no way to constrain a centerline, nor can I select it for dimensioning. Is this an intended behavior?

    There still working on that.

    I find this frustrating as well.  In my sketch, I have pairs of slots.  I add  centerlines between the pairs, and wish to dimension the centerlines, but the dimension tools will not select the CL's

    michael_mcewen,yes, until now we still could not give dimensions from center lines, but I  believe this issue will be solved soon!

    I hope that hole callouts in drawings will also be added soon.

    michael3424, kindly remind that we can create associate dimensions to centerline in drawings now , how nice !

    @shanshan I agree that centerline-based dimensions are great and do appreciate them, but use hole callouts on almost every 2D drawing so they are important for me.
