  1. The spacing is determined by the Cascade spacing box in the TechDraw ExtensionSelectLineAttributes.svg TechDraw ExtensionSelectLineAttributes tool.
  2. Select two or more vertexes.
  3. If the first selected vertex is positioned left of the second one, the baseline is created at the leftmost vertex.
  4. If the first selected vertex is positioned right of the second one, the baseline is created at the rightmost vertex.
  5. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
  6. Coordinate dimensions with centered dimension texts are created.
