Q - question

Quick 1-/2-click dimensioning in AutoCAD.

A - answer The standard AutoCAD dimension commands prompt not only for the dimensioned geometry but also for the position of the dimension line, which adds one more click.

With a short LISP macro you can dimension simple DWG geometry with a single click, using a fixed dimension line offset, specified by the height of the dimension text.

You can download the DimFixT utility with its DIMFIXT (two-point dimension) and DIMFIXL (line dimension) commands from www.cadstudio.cz/download and then load it with APPLOAD. The usage of both new commands saving the number of mouse clicks is illustrated in the video animation:
