As much as I am please with the new Dimension Overrides box...

 

Why have I now lost the ability to edit multiple dimensions!?!?!?!??!

 

Why would something as simple as this be removed?

Where we could previously select multiple dimensions and simply add a common Prefix within Element Properities, it seems we now need to do it one-by-one. Back to the stone age we go...

Have I missed something?

thanks,Simon.

I would say you have not missed a thing.  Seems a bit silly doesn't it?  If the software is truly parametric, you'd think you could tie a parameter from one dialogue box into the parameters that show up in another dialogue box.  So just make the Prefix parameter show up in the Element Properties box.  I know the guys at the factory are working hard on this, but this one seems a bit silly.

 

I'm sure someone was thinking "How many dimensions do you really need to override text on in a project?" not thinking of the situation that you are probably in now, having to manipulate multiple dimensions strings at once... oh well.

So is it still possible to link the Prefix/Suffix parameter into the Element Properties Dialog when multiple dimensions are selected?

 

Or were you implying that this would be the best method for the future...?

It was more of a note to those developers that troll the forums.  I was asking them why it wouldn't be possible to link the parameters.
