When I try to go to the dropdown menu everything is grayed out except the "Smart Dimension tool" I have tried several things but can not figure out why this is happening. Any one have any ideas or solutions?
For me at least your question is vague. Please provide a screen shot of what menu you are referring to. Thanks in advance.
It could be that you're in the middle of a command that doesn't permit dimensioning.
That the Smart Dimension isn't greyed is probabaly because I believe it's a menu and if you expanded it, all of its submenus are probably greyed.
For unavailable commands, only the commands are greyed on the menus, not the menu items that open submenus.
As Solid Air requested, please post a screen shot, including the area at the feature tree/property mananger, so we all can see what may be happening.
Ok, so I'm not the smartest guy on how to use this forum stuff, just want to let everyone know with help from Jonathan at Support@solidworks.com, I was able to figure out what was going on. For the drop down menu to display the rest of the dimension tools you have to be in edit sketch. I figured it was a user error but just had to have someone Gibbs Slap me, LOL
Thanks to all
