  • open part
  • double-click part geometry ... dimesions related to selected piece of geometry appear
  • select dimension, press RMB and use Properties command from context menu

Do not open Relations dialog box !!!

Re: Can not access Dimension properties

Is the .prt file locked (as in PDMLink/Windchill)? (most common problem I have seen)

When you right click, are you getting any right click menu or just no "properties" option? New users sometimes don't realize you have to click and hold right mouse button longer than other programs. Not sure if that applies to you.

I don't know if the file is locked but when I hold right mouse button, the only options I am getting are 

-Pick from list

-Lock

-Value

-Move 

-Move Text

-Exit Edit Dimension

-Exit Edit Dimension


You can't edit the dimension properties while you're editing the value on screen.  Try picking "Exit Edit Dimension", then left click the dimension once, then right click and see if you can get to properties.

Re: Can not access Dimension properties

Tried that still no luck, It does show other options but no Diemensions Properties 

Re: Can not access Dimension properties

Should be just as simple as right click, properties in either the drawing or the part file.

If you are in windchill pdmllink, make sure your part file isn't locked, you can't edit model dimensions (even in a drawing) when the part is locked.
