Can't Edit Dimensions Anymore?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if a clicked a button or setting somewhere by mistake, but for some reason, I can no longer edit dimensions? I just get the clickies where I can drag the dimension around, but I can't edit dimensions anymore. 

 

For example, I was trying to edit the 11'-11 1/16" dimension in the picture below, but I no longer can for some reason.

 

What happened?

What is it that you are actually trying to edit ?  The measurement or the size of the room ?

 

Also what version of the software are you using ?

What are you trying to do by editing the dimension -- move something?

The measurement. The 11'-1 1/16" dimension in this particular example. I'm wanting to move the wall. I am no longer able to edit any dimension anymore.

 

I'm using Chief Architect X8.

You don’t select the dimension and edit it.  You select the OBJECT that is being dimensioned.  Then you can click on the desired dimension to change it.

As Michael said, click the wall followed by the dimension text. If it does not open for edit the dimension is not snaped to the wall.
