Editing Dimensions in Sketch Mode

I've been trying to follow the basic sketching tutorial. But it seems to allow editing of dimensions, and my version of Fusion doesn't seem to allow that.

 

Considering another message suggested that you could do it, I'm sure this is my error.

 

So what am I doing wrong?

 

I can dimension things (although the first dimension attempt in that video between the two circle centers fails) but I can't modify dimensions.

When you escape the dimension command - what happens when you click on a dimension?

After having tried this for literally weeks, and having it fail, it worked. So I think I wasn't doing something right.

 

Does parametric dimensioning also work then?

 

Please ship this thing! :-)

First, definitely do the tutorials that come up (the video ones) they're well worth it.

 

There is also a manual in PDF form. But i can't remember where I found it. It might be as simple as the help menu

 

but, if you are working on a sketch. the sketch is in edit mode, and you're in dimension mode, you can just double click on a dimension to change it. It's the being in the right modes that is likely getting you (and was me).

 

Plus, you also can do math in the field (+ - * / ) which is really useful
