Constrains the distance between two points, or the length of a single entity, to the horizontal (X direction) in the current coordinate system. (This command is equivalent to the Horizontal option of the DIMCONSTRAINT command.)
Accessing the Command
command bar: dchorizontal
menu bar: Parametric | 2D Constraints | Horizontal
toolbar: 2D Constraints |
ribbon: Parametric | 2D Constraints | Linear | Horizontal
: dchorizontal
Prompts you in the command bar:
Specify first constraint point or [Entity] <Entity>: (Select a valid constraint point, or else press Enter to select an entity. )
Specify second constraint point: (Select another valid constraint point)
Specify dimension location: (Select a point to position the dimension line)
Dimension text <xx.xx>: (Type a value, or else press Enter to accept the current value)
The horizontal distance (parallel to the X-axis of the current coordinate system) between the two points is constrained.

Entity |
Constrains the horizontal distance between the endpoints of an entity. Prompts you:
The entity is constrained horizontally (parallel to the X-axis of the current coordinate system), but can continue change its size in other directions. |
