I don't think you can do either. Why do you want to if you don't mind my asking.

The dimension in the offset line seems to be a niche type need. I can not remember ever keeping one. With out a doubt, there are many that find it useful, or it wouldn't be there.

 

The key-in value display was a request by an occasional user that does not like them.

 

Both of these are similar, in my opinion, to relationship handles that have toggles for display. Let the user decide what is wanted to be displayed.

Not sure I get how values will be input without the display.

Hi there,

 

I recall this being discussed and thought there was a solution for this, but can't find where it is. [may have been the old "closed" news group...I'll do a search in the archives soon]

If you switch off Maintain Relationships on the Relate tab when in sketch or profile mode it will not place the offset dimension.

 

This does not help with the other issue you mentioned with the length and angle of a line.

For that part, try turning off Auto-Dimension in Intelli Sketch setting....
