How to rename a dimension in sketcher?

Can someone tell me how to rename dimensions in sketcher when using Creo 3.0? Apparently if the dimension name is modified to contain the letters DS, then when the model is imported into ANSYS, that software will recognize the dimension as parametric. Seems like a little rename like this should be obvious, but I cannot seem to figure it out.

Hi,

I think sketcher dimension you can see in Sketcher mode cannot be renamed, they follow default naming scheme sd0, sd1, ...

You can rename model dimensions - see picture.

Sketcher doesn't have names for dimensions, just index numbers d1, d4, so on.

The name is changed in the feature that is built from the sketcher geometry by selecting the properties for the dimension. It's in the requester/dialog box at the top.
