If you place a new line or a new rectangle you can see the dimensions as you draw it. That is great
But if you edit the line or rectangle after it is placed, you don’t get to see the dimensions.
I can place an aligned linear dimension, but those things do not snap to other things. In other words, they don’t move along.
Is there a way to see the dimensions of a line or rectangle while you change it?
The values in the statusbar (length+angle) are interactively updated during modifying a line .
I find the easiest method is to use “dx & dy” at the very bottom, middle, of your screen, below the workspace.
Using your above example,
place your cursor at the origin,
press the space bar which will set dx &dy to Zero,
move your cursor to the diagonally opposite corner of your red box
highlight that corner,
Drag your box in the X or Y or both planes while watching “dx & dy”.
