I have to believe this must have been addressed before but I cannot find it. I am experimenting with NanoCad to replace AutoCad. I am trying to place a dimension between the endpoints of 2 lines. I click on the horizontal dimension button but it does not allow me to select the end point. If I click on the line I get the aligned dimension of that line. I just need to be able to select points.

The drawing was originally created in AutoCad if that makes any difference.

Version 5.0.2520.1471 Endpoint snap is on. I've also tried SHIFT+right click to select endpoint. It won't let me select the endpoint, only the line. I need to place a horizontal dimension between the endpoints of two lines.
