Dimension without Constraint

famadorianfamadorian Member Posts: 266 ✭✭
Is there some way I can place a dimension on something, without it being a constraint?

For example, if I set a dimension between two lines, I can't drag the lines closer, unless I first delete this dimension constraint. 

I'd like a measurement between the two lines, so that I get visual feedback when I move the lines. 

Makes sense?;) 

Any way to do this?
