  1. I still want to see the ability to edit the angle dimension and push the wall accordingly
    I have been suggesting this option since 6 years

  2. Is there any chance of doing an inch suppression when dimensioning? In small areas, I would like to use 1′ instead of 1′-0″.

    • You can change an individual dimension to show “in inches”, so in your case you would get 12″ … or you can use the “show text” option and enter the 1′.

  3. I really wish you would’ve added changing the font style on the fly like we can change the point size and other functionalities. It doesn’t look like you’ve gotten enough requests!
