Automatic dimensioning has been incorporated into ArchiCAD for quite a long time now; one has to select elements to be dimensioned and go to Document > Document Extras > Automatic Dimensioning in order to be able to activate this tool. But there is a limitation in terms of dimensioning Storey Level lines with previous versions, "Storey Level Lines can not be selected" and Dimensions do not stay associated with Storey Level Lines if they are manually dimensioned, which means changing or altering Storey Levels would require a hustle of deleting and re-entering new Dimension points.

In ArchiCAD 19, Dimensioning storey Level Lines is made easy and possible by selecting the Dimension Tool and with one click on one of the Storey Level Lines, all Level Lines will be marked with an associative Dimension point, and they will stay associated even when the Storey height is changed.
