I drew an inclined line and want to lengthen it by 10 mm. How?
In Autocad I could rotate the coordinate system according to the line and so the horizontal direction would be parallel to line. Can I do it here?
A pic would help, if its dimensioned chg the dim. If its not grab the end point and move it.
I know that,but I want to continue it straight at it's initial direction.
Take a snap shot of the sketch and insert it in your post.
I want to stretch the line in the direction of the red arrow
Add a dimension that is parallel to the construction line and then edit that dimension.
Select the end point you want to extend, look in the property manager and see if it has any relations, if not drag it to where you want, you can also define the other end point then dimension the line and that will extend it.
Just selecting the line and adjusting the length in the Parameters section of the Dimension Manager will also extend the line in the required direction.
Those answers are O.K.
But the dimension is with a decimal point.
Is there a method of extending the line +10 of what it is?
Can I insert a formula in the dimension?
Karol this should be a quite easy thing to do. You can either use dimension and change that or simply extend the length in property manager of the line. Check attached video.
How, with which program, you have recorded the film?
Give it a dimension. Then double-click to edit the dimension.
In the Modify dialog box, you can type "+10" without quotes and hit OK (you can type formulas into the box).
Alternatively, click the up arrow to the right of the numbers to go up in increments of 10mm.
Or grab the jog dial under the numbers and slide to go up 10mm.
Pro-tip: hold Shift or Ctrl while dragging the jog dial to modify the increments to +1 or +100
