Drop Dimensions to Segment
by Marc Thomas - 01 March 2005
A possibly un-noticed option in the Drop Element tool is the option to drop Dimensions to Segments. This breaks a dimension string into a series of separate dimension segments.
This could be useful if you have a long dimension string that you need to break up. The Remove dimension tool, in Tools > Dimensions > Misc Dimensions, will remove a dimension point but cannot break up the string.
To do this, drop the dimension string to segments then delete the unwanted segments. The downside of this is I haven't found a re-"string" tool to join segments back together in to a dimension string.
