There is better control over the placement of ordinate dimensions that are created in models and drawings.

Set the detail option, default_ansi_ord_dim_aligned, to specify the alignment of the ordinate dimension to one of the following:

• Yes – Aligns with the baseline dimension. This is the default.

• No – Stays at the position of the pointer until you place it.

Tips: The detail option, default_ansi_ord_dim_aligned, is available only when the detail option ord_dim_standard, is set to std_ansi.

User Interface: In a drawing, click Annotate > Ordinate dimension
