The Dimensions feature enhances the Word with angular, linear and parallel dimensions.
The TrimExtend feature enables two not-parallel lines to be trimmed and/or extended to their intersection with one click.
The ExtendTo feature can be used to extend one or more lines to the limiting line, which has to be selected as the last shape.
The Pattern feature adds the capability of adding angular and parallel patterns of lines and other shapes.
Shape To Lines
In order to use the Word Technical Drawing Add-In features the shapes used must be lines. The ShapeToLines feature converts the freeform shapes to lines and so enables the use of other features.
