Use the Drop Dimension to Graphics command, available from the Dimension shortcut menu, to convert a dimension into individual elements such as lines and text boxes.

  1. From the active drawing sheet, place drawing elements and then place a dimension. For more information on using dimension commands, see Dimensioning Drawing Elements.

  2. Right-click the dimension to open the Dimension shortcut menu.

  3. Select Drop Dimension to Graphics.

    The dimension is converted into a group of elements.

  4. With the group selected, click Ungroup from the Change toolbar.

    You can now select each individual element.

    In the figure below, a dimension has been placed for one side of a rectangle.

    After the dimension is converted and ungrouped, each element, such as the text box, can be selected.
