HintLightbulb.png Hint: The first floor exterior walls sit on the sill so the interior walls start 1.5" lower. These panels have been designed to use 106.125" studs (1.5" longer than standard pre-cut studs) so they will be the same height as the exterior walls when they are in place. The utility channel spacers are also raised 1.5" to be at the same height as in the exterior walls

HintLightbulb.png Hint: Drawing Dimensioning Workbench is no longer maintained/updated by FreeCAD, though it is still fine to use. The supported workbench is called TechDraw.
FreeCAD Wiki

Protocol: Note that only single objects can be used in dimensional drawings with the Drawing Dimensioning workbench. For complex assemblies, simply collapse into simple copies of compounds - or compound STEP exports (to turn them into simple solids). As such - take master files - take the necessary selection - and turn into one dumb object. Then you can get nice dimensions. Save the file with teh pages included - pages with dimensions show up in another tab, though.
