Creates jogged dimensions for circles and arcs.

DIMJOGGED (Command) #

DIMJOGGED measures the radius of the selected object and displays the dimension text with a radius symbol in front of it. The origin point of the dimension line can be specified at any convenient location.

Note: Jogged radius dimensions are also called foreshortened radius dimensions.

Creates jogged radius dimensions when the center of an arc or circle is located off the layout and cannot be displayed in its true location. The origin point of the dimension can be specified at a more convenient location called the center location override.

The following prompts are displayed.

Select Arc or CircleSpecifies #

a circle, arc, or arc segment on a polyline.

Center Location Override #

Specifies a new center point for a jogged radius dimension that takes the place of the true center point of the arc or circle.

Dimension Line Location #

Determines the angle of the dimension line and the location of the dimension text. If the dimension is placed off of an arc resulting in the dimension pointing outside the arc, the product automatically draws an arc extension line.

Mtext #

Displays the In-Place Text Editor, which you can use to edit the dimension text. Use control codes and Unicode character strings to enter special characters or symbols. See Control Codes and Special Characters.

If alternate units are not turned on in the dimension style, you can display them by entering square brackets ([ ]).

The current dimension style determines the appearance of the generated measurements.

Text #

Customizes the dimension text at the Command prompt. The generated dimension measurement is displayed within angle brackets.

To include the generated measurement, use angle brackets (< >) to represent the generated measurement. If alternate units are not turned on in the dimension style, you can display alternate units by entering square brackets ([ ]).

Dimension text properties are set on the Text tab of the New, Modify, and Override Dimension Style dialog boxes.
