Is the old double click dim editor really gone ?

Hi, I am new to ACAD '11 and I am really missing the old editor that pops up when you double click a dimension.


It's not just a text editor (ddedit)... it's the one where you can change the "geometry" of the dim... (change arrowheads, remove lines, etc.).

When the window popped up it had 3 tabs across the top.


I hate using the properties window for all this.


If anyone remembers this... and knows how to add it to my ACAD 2011... I would really appreciate the help.


If anyone does have the answer... a simplified version would be great... I'm a relative dummy when it comes to editing anything inside ACAD's CUI, etc.


Thank you very much

Couldnt edit a 2nd I replied to my post...


I am thinking it was an "AutoCAD Mechanical" feature, after doing a bit of Googling...


Maybe I'm just out of luck.


Attached is an image I found of the "Geometry" window...
