1.  Started sketch
2. Created rectangle on front plane, froze plane so it doesn’t jump around
3. Selected front plane
4. Selected Dimension tool
5. Tapped screen to show cursor
6. Dragged cursor to highlight corner point, lifted finger and point stayed highlighted
7. Tapped screen to show cursor
8. Dragged cursor to highlight another corner point
9. Point does not highlight when I lift finger
10.  Message displayed, “A dimension cannot be created between these points”

What gives?

    Think we’re getting closer.  When I create a new sketch, it works.  Somehow additional sketches get created.  I don’t create them overtly but the system does it.  After that happens, the error message pops up.  Is there some constraint that prevents dimensioning with multiple sketches?
