3.      Depending on the context, various dimensions are displayed onscreen:

a.     By default, the overall width and height are shown for each isolated bay and each group of adjacent bays (bay clusters).


b.     Additionally, for each bay with at least one selected shelf, vertical shelf measures are shown. And for each bay with at least one selected divider, lateral distances between dividers are displayed.

Dimension Settings

You can set the following parameters for dimension text and lines:

1.      click Settings on the upper toolbar:


2.      Set the options under Schematic View / Generic Products / Dimensions:

Font face


This sets the typeface for the Dimension Lines. It also applies to text labels on generic products, in schematic view and on products in the database that use the box shape without picture.

Dimension color


This sets the color of the dimension lines and text.

The size of the dimension text and arrows is adjusted automatically for a text height of 3 mm onscreen. (The exception is in the Publish task where the dimension text and arrows are sized to match a scaled preview of the Picture output.)

The measurement unit used for dimensions is the same as specified for all the application in Settings > Measurement unit (see Measurement unit).
