Dimensioning Problem

The Text is too large. How do I change the Size? I'd like to move the red dimension further away from the part. How do I do that?  How do I delete the red dimension?Dimensioning Problem

You can change the size of the dimension text in Options - Current Drawing Preferences - Dimensions, but only for all dimensions in a drawing, not individually.
To move the dimension away, select (click on) it. You then can either pull out the whole dimension with the right end blue handle (square) or just move the text with the blue handle at the middle.




To delete: select it and press the Delete tab on your keyboard.

I go to Tools->Select->Select Entity. When I click on it turns dashed red.  I see the blue dots, but when I click on them nothing happens (I think the problem may be in the snap connections at the bottom. I tried several but no change.  Also, I do not understand their functionality. Can you give me a brief explanation here?




To delete: select it and press the Delete tab on your keyboard.  Delete using select, hit delete button works, also worked on the arc we talked about before.

"I see the blue dots, but when I click on them nothing happens". Keep mouse button pressed, pull to desired position and release. Nothing to do with snap connections. Too tired to explain more now. Please read the manual: https://wiki.librecad.org/images/2/20/LibreCAD_Users_Manual_2.1.3.pdf
