When I have set a 'New' dimension saved and made current. I try to add dimensions either by clicking on 'Dimension' or typing in DIM and I am getting various instructions across where I want to put the 'click'. for example 'Set extension line origin to continue'. It means I cannot just click on a line. What am I doing wrong please?

I am starting my CAD studies here at "My Cad Site" and I would like to ask for some suggestions about a good laptop to run the free student version that I can download from the Autodesk website.

Thanks a lot.

I am not a CAD user , or in any way an expert user.
I make car seat covers for a vintage car - the Peugeot 205 GTi.

Trying to draw a square 10"x7".
can you help me figure out what's 1,2 (what 1 stands for and what 2 stands for) and What's 3,2 - 3,4 - 1,4 stands for?
I don't understand how it came out to be 2" square...

Hello everyone

I have a doubt while using autocad 2016 version. While I enter specific points for line command they do not form a straight line.

I tried to make a perfect square like I saw here on the site on a video but wasn't able to make it.

I'd love to get your help.

Thank you!
