    Bolts & Anchors Fabrication elements

    Under the steel menu, fabrication elements there are bolts and anchors that I am using. Why can't I add dimensions to these for example length of the bolt in section?

    Unfortunately this is the current limitation. Use a bolt tag to show the length.

    I have found that if you have a view showing the bolt head or nut, like in a base plate detail, you can dimension to the bolt centerlines if you change the visual style to wireframe.

    Doesn't seem to work in section, but may be some help.
