Dimensioning distance in Layouts

In Layout viewports, objects in detail views are annotated with the model space distance.

In this example, the blue circle is in the layout viewport. Its radius is annotated as 10 units (the layout space distance). The red circle is in a detail viewport. Its radius is annotated as 100 units (the model space distance) whether the radius dimension is created in the detail viewport or the layout viewport.

Select objects across detail viewports

  1. Double-click a detail viewport to make it active.
  2. Select some objects in the detail viewport.
  3. Hold Shift and double-click another detail viewport.
    The object selected in the first detail viewport will remain in selection.
