Hello SW community!
My question is about the Measure tool. I just recently upgraded at work from SW 2015 to SW 2019 / SP 2.0. I use Measure tool frequently, as a part of process designing new parts. It has worked fantastic for me! Until now.
Here is my question / frustration. With the "upgrade" came the unwanted (to me) "feature" of adding "Quick Copy" in the Measure tool. Except, it doesn't work for me. How can I turn this "feature" off? It adds an extra step to my process, if I measure and want to copy to calculator. So what used to be a TRUE quick copy for me, now I have to open Word and paste there first, so I can copy just the numbers from Word and paste those to the calculator.
The attached PDF illustrates my (new) process. The calculator does not recognize a number with "in" for "inches" at the end, and I can't "quick copy" just the numbers. Or can I? Help!!!
I did search the SW Help and forum for other questions about it first, so I hope this has not been asked before. If anyone has a quick resolution that I haven't seen, if there is a button or option to turn off, I will be grateful for your help. Even if I can somehow "outsmart" the quick copy and just highlight/select/copy the numbers without IN? I only seem to be able to select the line (with IN) or the entire text of the Measure box.
Tips and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
