How can I edit the dimensions of a sketch?

Whenever I sketch an object the dimensions do not appear and when I try to edit them with the dimension tool they also don’t appear; it only selects the sketch and then deselected it. I am using the Onshape app on an iPad.

    you will need to edit the sketch, if you want to modify dimensions.

    you should be able to show dimensions (they will disappear once you lose focus)

    There is no way to toggle "show all dimensions" like you can in SW

    if you are trying to make a 2D drawing, then you should import your sketch into a drawing tab and dimension in there.
