Flipping arrows while dimension is "active" (WF2 vs WF4)

Hi folks....

In WF2 drawing mode, when you tag a dimension and "hold down" the left mouse button so you can position it to where ever you want on the drawing,

you are able to flip the arrows to "inside" or "outside" just by right clicking themouse button. However, on WF4 it seems I am not able to do that. I can

still toggle the arrows of course by tagging the dimension and then holding down the right mouse button and selecting from the menu that appears, but

not while the dimension is active. I figured this was a config setting, which it may well be, but I sure couldn't locate it. Any ideas?

Sure appreciate it as always...

Since I'm still stuck in WF2 and my friend who I posted this for is up
to WF4, i'm not much help to him because mine works fine on WF2, but I
did get a reply
to check out TAN 137758, which I let him know and told him to contact
PTC if he still has trouble with this issue. Thanks for your replies
folks,

As in "Mastercam X"?

FYI: The latest release is actually "Mastercam X2" (MR2) ...

Sorry Dustin, I was sending out a test because the last thread I sent
never made it through the portal.
I actually had a question on 5-axis machining.

I am trying to control a 5-axis tool path so that my tool never drops
below centerline. I have a mill/turn
style machine (intergrex) that has little to no travel below spindle
centerline, and the tool path I need to
generate requires the cutter to mill completely around a boss that has
tapered sides. Basically I need
part to rotate a full 360 with a axes doing their thing, but keeping the
cutter above centerline the whole time.

I tried setting my work cell travel limits to see if that might affect
the tool path and keep it above centerline,
but it only gave me a info window telling me how far past my travel
limits I went. Any thoughts?

Thanks; Mark
