Once a dimension has been added, which could be “Horizontal”, “Vertical”, “Aligned” or “Angular”, all these dimension types will all work with “Continuous” and “Baseline”.

The “Continuous” and “Baseline” commands are located in the “Dimension” panel of the “Annotate” tab of the “Ribbon” menu both commands can be accessed by selecting the drop down arrow to the right of the “Continuous” command as shown in Figure 1.

However as an alternative, select an existing Dimension to display the “Grips”, hover over one of the arrow grips to display the menu as shown in Figure 2, and select “Continuous Dimension”

Now simply select the points on the object to create the “Dimensions”, as shown in Figure 3.

The process is the same if “Baseline” dimensions are required, just select “Baseline Dimensions”, as shown in Figure 4.

The result is shown in Figure 5.
