when i start a new part i sketch a square and put on 1 measurement but it shows up in blue and when i change the measurement the line does not adjust to the length i type in. The only thing that happens is the measurement gets a underline

you need to toggle that dimension to a driving (red) dimension.

 

Select the little lock icon to the right of the dimension input box.

 

Unlocked = Driven dimension (reference dim)

Locked = driving dims
