    can not select dimensions from graphics view for equation

    James Watkins



      I am unable to select variables for my equations from the the graphics area. I am trying to follow a simple tutorial that outlines this feature and have no luck. It describes the step as:


      1. Click Equations on the Tools toolbar.

        The Equations, Global Variables, and Dimensions dialog box appears.

      2. Click Equation View .
      3. In the Name column, under Equations, click Add equation.
      4. Select the spacing angle dimension (120) in the graphics area.


      When I go to select the dimension in the graphics area, it selects the background and all dimensions disappear until I select the feature again from the design tree.


      This is driving me crazy as It is a very simple feature I would like to implement in my work.


      Possibly there is a setting or filter that may help with this?


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
