Double click editing is not working for dimension in autocad 2006.Can you help me to do that??

Lee Ambrosius

Double-clicking a Dimension in AutoCAD 2006 or earlier results in the Properties palette being displayed. Youi can use a custom routine that I created a few years back for AutoCAD 2004 to specify which command to use for each object type. See the following page and download CustomDblClkEdit.zip.

I was the one who made this suggestion and I have been so out of the CAD loop since then with many changes in life, I hadn't had a chance to check it out. About a year ago I decided to try it in 2007, and it never worked so I said fewey to them for telling me it would be utalized in 2007. But just yesterday I decided to do some digging around in CAD and found teh CUI editor had a string called "double click". "Yeah!", I thought to myself as I felt rather good about promoting this and seeing it come through. Then I tried it out and I must say that is about the most botched thing they have added. I can't get it to stay constant in it's settings. Has anyone else had issues with it's functionality or am I setting up actions wrong?
