When restricting an sketch some times I want to make a dimension equal value than other. I usually do that by clicking on the dimension square, then clicking on reference, then clicking on figure parameter, then clicking on the other dimension. Is there a quicker way to do that? Like clicking directly on the other dimesion while pressing a key?

If the name of selected dimension is equal to "p123"

You should in the required dimension write "p123"

Lake this: p12357=p123

You can don't enter in sketch but change the value in model browser previously select the sketch.

An alternate, *if* there is a similar piece of geometry being dimensioned (e.g. both are the length of a line, or arc radius) is to use geometric constraints (for line, "equal length", for arc "equal radius", etc.)

Production:NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2

I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled

But there is one moment:

how would You like use the geometric constrains with spreadsheet

or change expressions without the sketch?
