Where was the "override measurement" so I could write my own measurement over the existing one ?

Hi @12131444,

Menu > Edit > Annotation > Text.

Select the dimension and enter the manual dimension/text as you needed.

Do a command search for Edit Text.  Then select the dimension.  I think there is two commands,. One works well and the other does not work.  Try both.

The newer method:

Double click the dimension, select the Settings icon and expand [+] Text.  Select Format and check the option "Override Dimension Text".  Hit OK to the warning and select the [A] icon to launch the Text Editor (in newer versions you can edit the value directly on the Settings dialog in the text entry field).
