Change to Driven Dimension moves from the top of the dialogue when configured.

I use alot of Driving and Driven Dims in sketches and automatic switch these from the dialogue without thinking or looking but I get messed up when a configuration is added because configure dimension then sits on top of the dialogue and seems to always get hit by mistake.

I'd really love to see the "change to driven dimension" always stay on top with the change configuration dropping in below.

    Just a thought, but maybe rather than trying to tune the context menu (it will never be perfect for everyone's workflows), we could introduce a keyboard shortcut?  No promises on ever making this happen, just curious about your opinion on something like that.

    How about something clickable on the dimension itself? That way there is no shortcut to remember. Something like the flip direction icon from other dialogues perhaps.

    @Jake_Rosenfeld @owen_sparks    A short cut key would be nice, it might have to be used while hovering over the dimension.  However, I am pretty locked into the switch from the dialogue as I am very big on using driven/driving dim for layout sketches and it messes with me every time I add a configuration and switch a driven dim, it seems to be a constant mistake I make post config as I am not reading the dialogue, but I may be the anomaly.

    I like it! Making a dimension a “construction dimension” 😀
