David,

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.

Good luck!
Paul

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).

What version are you guys using?

Jim Jan

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...

Darrin

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.

It still works but like many other things in WF2 it has become a little bit more complicated:
While pressing the LMB you have to click the RMB.

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 gave up on that years a go and wrote a macro FA flip arrows.

Gerald

It works for me every time, anytime...

LMB to highlight the dimension, release LMB. Move the cursor over the dimension number itself and when you see four arrows, RMB and hold for ~1 second - the menu will then pop up with 'Flip Arrows'.

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.



Gerald Lanz

It's actually a little different in WF2. You see you have to hold down
the left mouse button and click the right button while the right is
still down....sorry I couldn't resist!

OK
do we all know how to flip arrows now.
It seems this thread has out lived its life

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! 🙂
