Dimensioning Peeves

Does anyone remember Solidworks way back when, (around 1999 - 2001) when you used to be able to put dimensions on a drawing almost as fast as you could click your mouse? Now you have to hover over the line or point you want to dimension seamingly forever, and then it's hit and miss as to whether or not it's actually going to select the entity you want. Then, if you have to select a really short line segment as the second pick, the dimension itself covers up the line segment that you want to select.


What happened? I know my productivity has certainly dropped doing drawings, exactly the opposite of what should happen as a program advances and computers get faster.
