View Dimensions

When I as to View Dimensions of a feature (extrusion) all I get is the sketch dimension, not the extrusion length.

Am I missing something?

    Yes, you are correct. At this point of time only sketch dimensions are shown but I guess provision of showing the extrusion length is also one of the improvement from the Onshape's list of priorities.

    Are you after screenshots with dimension or just wan't to know some measure/distance?

    I have asked for advanced 'named views' with possibility to add visible dimension since I would need to share these images. But if you just wan't to check some dimension, click any edge and see the measure in bottom right - click another instance and you will get distance and other measurement info.

    When asking to show dimensions one also has the opportunity to select a dimension and revise it, although when selecting the dimension you are brought back to the sketch and have to re-select the dimension to revise.

    Without being able to see the extrusion dimension I have to go back to the extrusion in the feature list to bring up the dialogue box.

    I feel this is a bit cumbersome.

    I'd rather be able to revise on the model. Would be much quicker.
