Summary0004293: Vertical dimensions can't be created in XZ and YZ working plane
DescriptionIn the Draft workbench, vertical dimensions (using the Dimension tool with the Shift key) can't be created in XZ and YZ working plane, only in XY (top) plane. But horizontal dimensions work in all three planes. In XZ and YZ planes, vertical dimension disappears during its creation with the Shift key, and the result is a weird dimension connected to the 3D origin. So for example, I can't create a parametric vertical dimension of a slanted roof in the Arch workbench. I know about the principle "clicking Shift while the pointer is close or far from the first point", but it helps only in the XY plane.
Steps To ReproduceSwitch to the Draft workbench, Utilities -> SelectPlane -> Front (XZ), View -> Standard views -> Front, select the Dimension tool, pick the first point anywhere, pick the second point of an imaginary slanted line, hold the Shift key and move the mouse pointer and try to create a vertical dimension of the slanted line. You can create only a horizontal dimension.
