About Modifying Objects With Dimensional Constraints Applied

You can control lengths, distances, and angles of objects by changing constraint values,
by manipulating dimensional constraints using grips, or by changing user variables
or expressions associated with dimensional constraints.

Edit Dimensional Constraint Names, Values, and Expressions

You can edit the names, values, and expressions that are associated with dimensional
constraints using in-place editing:

  • Double-click the dimensional constraint, select the dimensional constraint and use
    the shortcut menu, or the TEXTEDIT command
  • Open the Properties palette and select the dimensional constraint
  • Open the Parameters Manager and select the dimensional constraint either from the
    list or from within the drawing
  • Customize the Quick Properties palette to display several constraint properties

You can reference other dimensional constraints by selecting them during an in-place
editing operation.

NOTE:

You cannot edit the Expression and Value properties for a reference parameter.

Modify Dimensional Constraints Using Their Grips

You can modify a constrained object either by using the triangular grips or the square
grips on the associated dimensional constraint.

The triangular grips on dimensional constraints provide a way of changing the constraint
value while maintaining the constraint.

For example, you can change the length of the diagonal line by using the triangular
grips on the Aligned dimensional constraint. The diagonal line maintains its angle
and the location of one of its endpoints.

The square grip on dimensional constraints provides a way of changing the location
of the text and other elements.

NOTE:To edit a dimensionally constrained object using the grips on the object itself, click
the grip, and press Shift to suppress the constraint temporarily.
