After I add a dimension, I want to edit and replace the dimension text. How can I? That is, the units presented are not useful, but the dimension lines are. So, if I add a dimension, and it provides "37" as the text, I might want, instead, to have the text be, "Fred."
Instead of breaking the dimension apart, you can turn off 'Dynamic Dimensioning'. This will allow you to edit the text, but keep the dimension as a dimension object. Dynamic dimensioning is available on the Property Bar with a dimension object selected. Once it is disabled, you can select the Text tool and edit the text directly within the dimension. Sharon
