    We use two dim styles. One with the centerline and one without... however I have no idea why. Because if your family is not using the center line RP setting then even if you use the Center line dim style (unless you override all the dim style settings, but then all the witness lines will be "CL" and that's just dumb) it wont work right. So in your normal every day dim style set the dim style settings to utilize both centerlines and non center lines accordingly.


    I didn't see this posted in the thread but. If you change you line type settings for centerlines you can forgo the CL symbol..... if you would like.

    Tell them they can keep half the upkeep savings on all the other software. For me: pen, paper, Revit and PS, in that order.

    Does anyone know how to force Revit to put the Centreline symbol in when Revit decides it is not actually a centreline, but you think it is (or just want it to display as such). BTW we have a separate dimension style for Centreline display.

    It's it all in the family. The reference planes will determine if the dimension style thinks its a center line or not.

    So I was just looking into this because I cannot get the centerline to show up in the dimension. I am dimensioning to a circle, and it snaps to the centerline, but still no centerline on the dimension.

    The dimension style needs to be setup correctly as well. You can change the centerline symbol, pattern, and tick mark.

    See if I have it right. I don't know how to load a centerline symbol, if I need that.

    the setup is right... but is the line pattern really a centerline and is the the centerline pattern appropriate of the for the scale/length of witness line?

    Yes it's a centerline pattern. I checked it against a Revit family that I know it would identify as a centerline. It pulls a centerline on that family.

    Both dimensions are going to a centerline. One is to a plain circle and the other is to the center of a detail component. When I dim to the circle it makes the centerlines on the circle as it should. But in this case I guess that since the things are at a skewed angle, Revit doesn't get it. No biggie, I'll just have to draw a centerline.
