# changing the distance between elements any side is breaks up

Not applicable
I fix my distance between it was not inabled
now i have new problem when i change a distance between elements
the element (square) any side is moved but not whole element doesn't move
example is 1.200"x1.200" inside a 19"x16 square need move right side in 3"
6" from bottom instant of sides of the 19"x16" are push away so square 19"x16" become 25"x19" with corners not connected

Any time you want to fix the position of something, place a lick constraint
at that keypoint.
For example you want to lock the position of the bottom left corner of a
rectangle.
You want the rectangle to grow from that corner.
That is the corner where you place a lock constraint.
Be careful with placing to many locks for more complex drawings.
If everything within a geometry set is constrained properly, you typically
only need one lock.

Is there reset?
In older versions soild edge I never had to do anything
making a square or circle within a square using distane between for putting measurements would move the elements without moving sides of a squares.

A square inside another square is simply 4 8 lines.
these 8 lines are endpoint constrained so that you get the shape of 2
squares.
Each square has two dimensions that control the length and width of that
square.
There is no concept of inside or outside.
The position of one square to the other will be defined by two more
dimensions.
Without locking the position of one square,
there is no guarantee as to which square moves when changing the dimensions
that control the positions.
