Edit Model Dimensions in .idw

According to Help...

"If you set the option to edit model dimensions from a drawing when you
installed Autodesk Inventor, you can change the model dimensions in the
drawing."

Apparently this option was not selected during my install, because I cannot
double-click the dimension to edit it. I'm not trying to override the text,
I'm trying to change a part's geometry. Is there a way to toggle this
setting, or must 5.3 be reinstalled?

Did you use model dimensions when you made the drawing view?

Yes. I've checked "Get model dimensions on view placement" in Application
Options/Drawing, then created a view in a drawing. But double-clicking a
model dim merely brings up the Dimension Tolerance dialog.

I've got it. RMB the highlighted model dimension, then select Edit Model
Dimension.
