Hi lismurn,

Up until I retired I had access to Visio. I am now working quite successfully
with Libreoffice, however in Draw I cannot attach dimension lines to objects
in scaled drawings. This means that if I make adjustments to objects on the
drawing the dimensions do not automatically adjust. It is probably something
quite simple that I have to do, I only wish I knew what it was. I have tried
to work with glue but to no avail.

The dimension lines in Draw have no "glue" feature. But for first drawing you can enable "Snap to Object Points". When the dimension line is drawn, you can group the object and its dimension line. Then a scaling will work on both together and the numbers on the dimension line will adapt to the new length automatically.

Kind regards
