Mode & SelectionKeyCreator \ Detail \ Tools \ Mode-Selection
The Mode & Selection page of the Auto Dimension Configuration dialog contains settings specific to dimension and selection modes, and allows you to execute an auto dimension, load a previously saved configuration file, or save a new configuration file. These settings are explained below.
Select Dimension Modes from those available. Note that at least one Dimension Mode option must be checked in order for the OK, Execute Auto Dimension, and Save Config File settings to work. Note that a Dimension Mode setting must also be checked before the settings in its corresponding dialog page become active. For instance, the settings contained in the Vertical page would be grayed out if Vertical Dimensions is not first checked under Dimension Mode.
The settings under Selection Mode allow you to specify how entities will be selected for dimensioning. The available options are explained below.
