It can be done, but the selection method is a bit finickey, too many clicks and you missed the turn. If I remember correctly, you have to click in open space, move the cursor over the dimension to preselect it, Left click to turn it red, then right click once fast to flip arrows.
I'm a little confused. Flipping arrows with the right mouse button while dragging dimensions works the same way it always had for me. Have been through many spins of WF 2 (currently M170) and haven't noticed any change since we first switched over (M060 original).
From all the responses that said it worked I tried again. It does work but as someone said you have to hold down the right button while clicking the left. Before I just selected and moved the dim then released the LMB to click the RMB. Same basic steps, just need to keep the LMD down now. Thanks for the rapid replies.

It works a little differently now. I don't remember exactly how it worked in 2001. It's kinda tricky because in WF2, you have to hold down the LMB while while dragging the dim and simultaneously click the RMB to flip the arrows. I think in 2001 you don't need to hold down the LMB to drag (I could be wrong though).
It works when you first create the dimension. Haven't found a way to flip the arrows on an existing dimension or after you've created the dimension and committed it by hitting the middle mouse button or picking done.
Yes, it still works the same but is more difficult to use now, since you have to hold down the LMB to move a dimension instead of just clicking on it to "pick it up". Now, I have to hold my mouse with my thumb and pinky, hold down the LMB, and click the RMB with my ring finger to use this function. Not exactly the most ergonomic scenario.
Several have responded that it works. It DOES work, but it's NOT the same. You have to hold AND hold the LEFT mouse button (which initiates the move), and then click on the RIGHT mouse button to flip arrows. In 2001, once you were moving, all you had to do was click on the RMB to flip arrows...
If it is an existing dimension, select the dimension and move the dimension. While holding down the left mouse button, press the right mouse button and the arrows will flip. I believe in 2001 you didn't have to do this. You could just pick the dimension and right mouse click and the arrows would flip. You learn something new everyday.
I think the big difference is--now that I remember back a year from when we switched from 2001--is that you have to actually be moving the dimension to flip the arrows. In Rev. 2001, you could actually flip the arrows when the dimension was just highlighted--you didn't have to be moving it.
I think the slight difference in WF2 is that you have to hold down the LMB while dragging the dim and simultaneously click the RMB to flip the arrows. It feels awkward. I don't remember exactly how it worked in 2001, but I think in 2001 you don't need to hold down the LMB to drag (I could be wrong though).

Sorry if you get this more than once, but I'm having trouble with my posts not showing up.

This discussion seems odd. It works for me. Here's my details:
1. In a drawing... 2. select a dimension with left mouse button. 3. left CLICK AND HOLD on the dimension, you should be able to move the dimension. 4. while HOLDING the left click from step 3, right click (click and release) should flip the arrows
To sum up, you are holding down the LMB while moving the dimension and you should be able to right click to flip arrows.
I can move the dimension and flip the arrows at the same time. As mentioned before, this is likely a problem with how the clicks are held and released (mouse sensitivity or something like that)
I have both 2001 and WF130 on my machine. The difference is in 2001 the dimension has to be moving for the arrow to flio. I wrote a mapkey because I did not like moving dims around that were lined up.

In WF2 it is better. You LMB click on the dim then RMB click to flip then back to LMB to accept. Dimension does not have to move, That is good! You do not have to hold down the LMB and RMB at same time.
Wow! Using WF2 is quite difficult when it comes to flipping arrows. You have to hold the LMB and click the RMB 50 times before the arrows will flip. At least that's how many times people have answered this same question! 🙂
