Running chain dimensions

Hi all,

I regularly use baseline dimensions for manufacturing drawings so the guys measure from a datum etc. common sense.  These are quick and easy where you must pick your first point and then just click the successive points to get your dims arranged on the sheet.


However when I send drawings out to architects they insist on everything being chain, not baseline.  Is there an option that allows me to create chain dims in the same way:  Click on the first point and then successive points, leaving chain dims in between without having to click two points for each dimension?


On the img attached, the top baseline dims require 5 clicks.  The bottom chain dims require 8 clicks.  I often have up to 30 to position so the difference in No. of mouse clicks becomes massive between the two methods.
