I am just starting to get into Layout.
Dimensions give me a lot of headaches, especially when i need to adjust them.
There would be less headaches, if LO would give me mor infos (via tooltips) about what will be moved.
Eg. when i doubleclick a dimension, hovering over the connection point, i get the move cursor. A tooltip could now tell me “Move connection point”.
Without that info, i need to read the manual, to understand what’s happening. Or i experiment, until i get it.
Or, a more confusing case: After doubleklicking a dimension, click an extension line. Now, just that line is blue.Hovering over the far end of this extension line, i get the move cursor. I can move the extension line. Hovering over the near end (where the dimension line is), i get the move cursor again. Seems like i can move the (blue highlighted) extension line too… but oh no, i will move the dimension… Looking closer, i can see that the end of the other extension line, and the connection points, are highlighted too… I can move them too. A tooltip would make that much more intuitive. Show it together with the appearance of the move-cursor, hide it when i click.
Maybe the request could be generalized to
Add Tooltips with additional infos about what action a tool will perform upon clicking
