bob zee, If you right click properties for the dimension, can you select min or max and get it to work? Did you try holding down the shift key when creating the dimension? I'm still on 2006, but I hope this didn't go away for 2007. Brian

yep, right-click on the dimension to get the min and max. bob z couldn't think of the terms 'min' and 'max' because, well, because they just aren't there as options! bob z. will try to hold the shift key while creating the dimension right now.
the holding of the shift key during creation works. :~)>
Thanks! bob z.

min/max option for dia dimension is only available if bob selects circle geometry and not center point.

I found when creating the dimension and still in the dimension command this option is not there but after when all dimensioning is done and you are out of the dimension command, right click and poof! there it is.... Although this is in a part not a drawing...

Just another thought here. If you attempt to create a diameter dimension in a sketch but fail to select a centerline, then two options will be missing or unavailable under Dimension Properties:

If this is the case, you must edit the sketch and drag/drop the extension line from geometry to contruction/centerline. Eddie

bob zee, I got to work once the old way by dragging the extension line right after creating the dim but can't do it again to save my sole! :( Shift key method works fantasic!
Brian, Thanks for the tip on shift key.
