The Simple Dimensioning command Simple icon.PNG allows you to depict the distance between two points of a feature.

The dimensioning lines each consists of two arrows, one at the starting point and one at the end point. In combination with the snapping tools (see also Snapping) located on the bottom-right of the user interface, you can achieve precise dimensioning results. The following graphic includes an example and shows how simple dimensioning lines are displayed on the map:

To snap to a point, hover the mouse over the feature until the brown cross symbols appear. Those symbols correspond to the respective vertices of the feature. Move the circular-shaped mouse cursor over the starting point, and click on the vertex to set the starting point. Drag the line to the end point, repeat the snapping process to locate the end point, and then click on the point to finalize the simple dimensioning line.
