Total newbie to Rhino needs help!


The help files regarding dimensioning specifies 1- pick first point, 2- pick second point, 3- pick location.

What is meant by "Location" location of what?
If I choose linear dimension for example, pick the bottom corner of a rectangle for my first point, and then the bottom right hand corner of a rectangle for my second point, no dimension comes up. It is evident that I am unaware of what location means to complete the third step.
Thank you for youir patience,
