Hello All,


I am hoping there is a setting that I am not seeing....


When creating drawings (dimensions), I find it very annoying that when I make my entity selection, SW assumes I want the length of that line (entity) and if I don't select the next entity perfectly, SW thinks that's my dimension placement.


I can't tell you how many times I need to delete the dimension and start over. I love automation but some times it's too automatic which equals automatic mistakes.


Another issue I see is that SW often wants to select the view - this is very annoying....I wish after a view was placed you needed to do something more to alter it so that you could select away and never get the "view dialog".


Thanks for your time and I appreciate any insight you may have.
