When i flip a dimension arrow with right mouse click, i need to move the dimension text to see the change, which i don't want to; basically you cant flip the arrows with the dimension without changing the dimension location. This a bug???

It was possible in earlier versions.

Yes, in prior versions when you have a dimension selected and if you hold down the left mouse button, you can tap the right mouse button to flip the arrows without having to move the dimension even a little bit.

We are aware that this is no longer working in Creo 4.0 and we're working on fixing it for F000.



Thanks for the update

Still not possible to correct a lost reference of a ordinate base dimension, i would have waited for this to fix!

if a have a big part with 30+ dimensions i have to place them all again.

Is this planned to change?
