Mates defining dimensions (plus)

Hi

 

I'm back again with another complicated or simple question (not sure, as searching the forums and looking at SWP reveals no immediate answers, so either I am stupid or this is not everyday). Anyway:

 

Is there a way to use mating in an assembly to drive the dimensions/parameters for a part? I can see how I would do it using dimensions (thanks again Deepak), but this is quite complex if there is a simpler way.

 

(No drawings attached as I think they wouldn't reveal much)

 

Also - a REALLY simple question - when drawing lines, how do you finish a series of lines but stay within the line tool to carry on adding lines elsewhere? (ie. without using escape) - I know this is stupidly simple but thought I would ask...

 

Thanks alllll

 

Jon
