    The TechDraw HorizontalDimension tool adds a horizontal dimension to a View. The dimension may be the horizontal distance between two points or the horizontal length of a straight edge. As with the TechDraw LengthDimension tool it is also possible to select two edges or a point and an edge, but these options make less sense for this tool.

    For more information see TechDraw LengthDimension.
