Use this feature to create a parallel dimension between two specified positions and along an axis.  As you are placing the second witness line the dimension is dynamic in value until the witness is anchored.

 

Using the Function:

  1. Select Linear Parallel from the Detail>Linear Dimension submenu.

  2. Indicate the first dimension position.

  3. Indicate the second dimension position.

  4. Select an axis selection method by clicking on the appropriate button or enter a value to define the axis:
