Creating Dimensions on sketch

Hi all

 

One of our senior designers seems to think there is a setting when creating a sketch that will automatically dimension.

 

So if a straight line is draw and 5 mm length is entered a 5 mm line will immedialtey be created, he seems to think that you can then immedialtey Dimension said line??

 

I can't find anything, settings wise, but he is a switched on guy so just wondered if there is any truth to his claim?

 

Thanks

Gareth

What version of Inventor are you using?

For the past few releases you can enter the dimensions directly as you are creating the sketch.
