Dimension Jogged

May 20, 2011

     The DIMJOGLINE command is available for adding or removing jog symbol for linear dimensions, showing a dimension value differs from it's factual measured dimension value. Generally, the value displayed here is greater than the actual measurement value.

    Jogged line is composed by two paralleled lines and a connecting line with 40 degree between them. As for the height of jogged line, user can set it from "Other Items" tab either in "Create New Dimension Style" dialog box or "Modify Dimension Style" dialog box.

    After adding jog symbol to the linear dimension, the jog is default to be placed at the center point between first extension line and dimension text, or center point based on the dimension text. To relocate jog symbol, you can adjust the position of dimension text or specify new position to locate jog after reselecting dimension.

To add a jog to linear dimension

  1.   Choose Dimension > Jogged Linear.

  2.   Select a linear dimension.

  3.   Specify a point on the dimension line to determine the jog symbol, or press ENTER directly to position the jog symbol in default place.
