Edit drawing dimensions

I got a new computer recently and installed Inventor 11. I found I could not change the drawing dimensions (It chanced in the Edit Box and shown the changes in the dimensions, but after click "OK", the Edit Box closed and the dimension did not change). I remember there were the similar problems before and I installed KB918118 fixed it. So I tried to install KB918118. But my computer shown a message saying my computer system is newer and do not need the KB918118 update.

 

So what I can do?

 

Thanks!!!!!!

Why are you changing the dimensions in the drawing as aposed to in the model?

Then the drawing would reflect the model changes.

I think, out of all of the things that forum newbies do, double posts grind me the worst.
