To edit a dimension:
|1.||If necessary, de-select 'Add Dimension' [that is, to add a dimension, Add Dimension cannot be active]. |
|2.||Double-click the arrowhead of the dimension or dimension or extension lines [ that is, do not double-click the dimension number].|
Blue: sketch-elements are under-defined.
Black: sketch-elements are fully-defined.
Sketch-elements are the same color as the Part-Outline:
Green: sketch-elements are green if the Part-Outline is Green.
Blue: sketch-elements are Blue if the Part-Outline is Blue.
TOP-TIP: Use CTRL+Z (Undo) or the Delete button.
|•||If one or more sketch-elements 'disappear', then CTRL+Z , possibly again and again.|
|•||If a sketch-element is black, and it should be blue, delete the sketch-element, and add it again. |
|•||If an angle dimension will not increase to be greater than 180º, then delete the dimension, move the sketch-element, add the dimension again.|
|•||If a dimension gets 'stuck' at 0, (angular or linear dimension) delete the dimension, and add the dimension again.|
To Fix a Point: use the Lock & Specify check box in the Point Vectors and Position dialog-box.
It is not possible to use the Lock and Specify check box if the point has any another constraint.
