does it mean when distance between is blue and won't let me make change dimension
Scenario I have 13" x 18" square and smaller 1.200 x 1.175" I make small square 4" from
left side 5" from bottom
Distance between is not letting me chance the dimension it blue colored
need help fining the setting for problem
Dimensions may have two states. 1. Driving - Typically a black/white dimension. It depends on what background color you use. A driving dimension can mbe used to manupulate geometry. 2. Driven - Typically green dimension. It may look blue on a black background. A driven dimension cannot drive geometry. The dimension itself is driven by other dimensions. An easy example to demonstrate this is to place a horizontal line. Make sure that Maintain Relationships id enabled or you will not get driving dimensions. Place a dimension on the line to control the length of the line. This will be a driving dimension. Place another dimension on the same line and pull it off on the other side. This will be a driven dimension. Dimensions are constraints. They help hold geometry together at specified values. Overconstrained conditions are not allowed. Both dimensions cannot control the length of the line. This would be an overconstrained condition. There is only one length definition which is controled by the first dimension placed. In your case look at the other dimensions and see if there are other dimensions that would control the position that needs to be modified. You can check to see if the dimension can be changed to driving by clicking on the dimension. There is a pad lock button on the dimension command ribbon. It will be poped up. See if you can press the button. If it does not cause an overconstrained condition, it should allow you to press the button down. I hope this helps. Rick B.
