With AutoCAD 2010 & 2011, the default setting when you had “Dynamic Input”enabled was awesome. When you select an object and then hover over a grip, it would show you the length, radius & angle. This feature saves me time from having to either pull a dimension or using the DISTANCE or LIST command. In AutoCAD 2012 however, this feature was disabled and I was not a happy camper. But my frustration and curiosity has payed off.
Here’s how to fix 2012:
- Right-Click over DYN and Select “Settings”
- Click the “Dynamic Input” tab & then check the check-box next to “Enable Dimension Input where available.” this is all you need to turn back on the dimensions & angles.
- You can also change additional settings for Dynamic Input by clicking the “Settings” button.
Now when you select an object, you will see a great feature of Dynamic Input!!!!
