There is a line pattern that is a centerline pattern.  If you need show that on a window, you can turn snap on and then use a line from the center of the  window.  It would not be attached to the window however.  I don't know of a way to change the extension line to the centerline pattern.  And if there is in system or drawing options, it would change all the extensions or you would forever going back and forth to options.  There is in character map a CL symbol that you copy and paste in a note.

If you need to see the CL symbol that is proper for center line, type Alt 0130 in a note and then move the note over the line itself.

You can use the CL text symbol (from character mapping) to label the center line if you want. That's what he means.

Ron, if you go to character map and look under the font you are using you can find a lot of interesting things there.  There is "CL" symbol that you could cut and paste out of character map into a note edit.  Tim was giving a short cut while in note edit I believe but the exact location of the different symbols in character map have different locations.  I picked a bunch of symbols I thought would be useful and put them into a symbol (or speed note for that matter).  Then I can explode the symbol, cut and paste what I want into my note.  Fractions are helpful because the fraction symbol (many are available in eights) make for a better looking note.

In SPHAND font the key stroke CTR+0130 will give you a centerline symbol.

That should be ALT not CTRL.
