dimensional input parameters displayed in viewport

When you double-click a sketch, its dimensions are displayed in 3D as editable numbers. Double-clicking one of the dimensions allows you to edit it, and hitting enter commits that change.

Is there an equivalent input for FS? It would be incredibly valuable.

    Thanks, Kevin. I'm not asking for a constraint solver, I'm just asking for a more descriptive and visual way of presenting input parameters than the "here's a big list of dimensions" method. What I want is really just a few special manipulator types that could display editable numeric dimensions in 3D space, exactly like when you're editing a sketch (but without the solver). I'd only need point-to-point, angle, radius, and diameter manipulators, and the ability to position them programatically so that the user can see what each dimension refers to on the geometry.
