    Simply left click on the dimension(s) you wish to delete, and then press the "delete" key on your keyboard. :smile: 
    Hope that Helps!

    If you are trying to delete from a mobile App (on android or iOS) you could view the constraints, find the dimension in the list and delete from there.  From iOS, select the dimension(s), use 2 finger tap, and find "Delete dimension" at the bottom of the menu.  Hope this helps.

    Now i tried that and it didn't work, hence my post.
    So just tried it again and clicked (selected) on the dim and it went a darker shade of yellow/orange and the delete key worked.
    Many thanks, it's these subtleties that catch you out at times.
