Foreshortened Dimensions: How Do They Work?

Usually when detailing a drawing, we will add a detailed view. Dimensioning this view can be a difficult task, but SolidWorks is always working to make that task easier. One of the tools they have given is an option called foreshortened dimensions. This option allows for the dimension of a radius or diameter to be placed into the view, without regard to the center line or the center point of the part. Please watch the video attached to see how this option works.
