Hi, I am just starting to use Solidworks and have a problem regarding dimensions. I was following a tutorial that said: in order to establish a dimension relationship you have to select a line then while holding CTRL click on the second line. This only gives my an angle dimension instead of a linear dimension all the while an icon with a mouse and a lock inside is showing. Also, I cannot see the popup toolbar allowing me to select Equal. Please help.
It sounds like you are trying to add a relation, not a dimension. You DO NOT want to be in the dimension command when adding a relation. So make sure the dimension command is turned off, then select one line and ctrl select the second line and the toolbar should come up.
