Tools not working.

I have Solid Edge ST6 on Windows7 Ultimate SP1. I'm using the student version. When I do a ISO Draft, the Smart Dimensions Tool, distnce between tool, & angle between tool don't work properly, i.e. I cannot adjust the distance between a line & a point or I cannot adjust the length.

Help please...

Basically its working in Part ISO but not working in Draft ISO.

The problem in draft iso is that Smart Dimension driving is not working.

The smart dimensions tool is locked & I am unable to unlock it.

Without knowing exactly what you are trying to achieve it is difficult to know how to assist you.
However Solid Edge is designed to not allow you to edit the 3D model from the Draft. If you need to edit the part or 3D then you must make the edit from the 3D model or part.

It is because you do not have the setting "Maintain Relationships" turned on.  See the button in the upper right corner of the Relate section on your Sketching ribbon tab.
