Ability to edit dimensions gone

Recommended Posts

I had to replace pc and reinstalled software. I copied my plan files from backup and opened one. I can grab an object and drag it around no trouble. But if I click an object and want to enter specific dimensions to locate it (as in moving a window one inch), I cannot edit the displayed dims.

I know this is just a setting in the software but I have not been able to find it.

Temporary Dimensions can be turned "ON' or "Off" as you choose. Look for an Icon that when you hover your mouse cursor over it says "Temporary Dimensions" and left-click on it to turn the tool mode "On".

Make sure your graphics card driver is current.

 

What is "not allowed"? Are you asking about Temp Dimensions, a Manual Dimension or Auto Dimensions?

I have a wall with a window or door in it. In Plan view I click on the window or door and it shows me temp dimensions so I see the width and its position in relation to other objects. I can click on one of those dimensions and then edit it, thus moving the window or door slightly. 

At least, I WAS able to do this on my old laptop.
