Sheet Metal Holes

Well I just loaded 6, and working on my very first part. A sheet metal part.
In 5.3 when defining the depth of the hole, you were able to type in
"Thickness"
In 6.0 all you can type in is "Thickne"
Is this a bug?

Keep typing. Mine "word wraps" but does accept the entire word, it just
truncates it.

Mine doesn't word wrap, it continues to beep
with every keystroke after the 7 character limit.

Opps. I didn't pay attention. It changes to red after 6 numbers but I can
type in Thickness.

The text also stays red, whereas before, the word "Thickness"
would turn black after typing in the last s.

Highlight the value, then RMB (Right Mouse Button) and select List
Parameters, then select Thickness.

Hey Mike.

I can do what your saying, but it won't accept in for a depth.
Just for yucks, I tried it for the diameter, and that worked, but not for
the depth.

Thanks for the tip though.

It didn't work for me the first time either. I knew that it SHOULD work, so
I kept at it. I found out, that if you double click Thickness, I had more
consistent results.
