SW2008 SP5.0ev XP64 here.
No problem - been doing it the last week or so. Just remember that you have to hold the Shift key until after you click the second entity.
I just tried that today. I couldn't get it to work either. I'll give another whirl tomorrow. Not sure why it didn't work. I tried several different shift key timing methods, included holding down the shift key until the last entity was clicked.
Not a major big deal, but it would save a couple of clicks if I can figure it out.
Yeah, it wouldn't really be a problem except that I need that particular dimension in a couple of places, and when I try to drag the dimension from the center to the edge, it goes to the edge on the other side of the circle and no matter how I drag it, I can't get it to attach to the correct edge.
Wayne - I am using SP4.0 so maybe when I upgrade to SP5 the problem will be fixed..
Angela, if you select the circle or arc when creating the dimension, after creating the dimension you sould be able to choose min. or max to change the dimension to the edge of the circle. You didn't say if your working with a sketch or a drawing the steps are slightly different for the 2.
