Dimensioning in Revit
Here is a quick tip when Dimensioning.
is using the Pick "Individual References" mode where we select each
point we want to dimension.
Here when we
choose the "Entire Wall" the Options become active and we can select
what references the Auto Dimension will refer too.
this tool and then select the reference dimension you want to remove or add,
then click in the blank space to finish.
Typically we'll start the dimension tool and pick point to point to complete our string of dimensions.
If we take time to look at the options bar and what we can select you'll see we also have the option to select the entire wall.
However I do find that the dimension selection may need to be edited after placement of the auto dimension but it is still a quick way of dimensioning.
You can edit what dimensions refer too by using the Edit Witness Line tool (EW) after selecting the dimension string you want to edit.
