I have drawn a part which is quite long, but only the ends need detailing, so I draw the length "not to scale" and indicating this by drawing double slashes through the part.
Adding the dimension then obviously shows a wrong value. In AutoCAD I could call up the properties and change this - either to a number or a letter - in LibreCad the only way I found is to explode the dimension, delete the number and put a text in. That, however, loses the connection of the dimensioning to the reference points.
Is there a way to keep the reference, but input a "manual" value?
Got it.... Many thanks. Often sketch a woodshop project and then change my mind on a dimension, or modify on the fly, then want to document. This is a simple fix where an accurate to scale drawing is not required.
