I have no experience with AutoCAD, but wish to become proficient at LibreCAD.
Unfortunately, I have hit a roadblock in my first attempts at dimensioning a line.
Following instructions in Bob's new manual, I have created a rectangle and saved it.
There is only one layer, and the eye is on in the layer list panel on the right.
I click on Dimension>Horizontal, then move the crosshair to the top left corner of the rectangle and left click once.
I then move the crosshair over to the top right corner and left click once.
If I move the crosshair up (no click), vertical lines are extended from the top left and right corners of the rectangle, but no number (dimension) is displayed on the drawing surface or any of the panels to the right or below.
There is a small "window" in the top toolbar named Distance, and there is a 1 in it, but it doesn't change.
Dimensioning is fundamental to my interest in LibreCAD, and I would appreciate help in solving this.
I am either missing a step, or there is an add-on to enable dimensioning, which I am unaware of.
