    Temp Dimensions & Stacked Walls

    Apparently (don't know why I haven't noticed this before) temporary dimensions don't show when you have a stacked wall selected. Anyone know a way around this (besides not using stacked walls)?

    Hit the activate dimensions button on your status bar (or whatever the bar is just below the ribbon).

    That works for some, but not for all of them. The ones it does not work for are orientated at a funny angle so I don't know if that has something to do with it.

    I wonder what is the purpose of having to hit the 'activate dimensions' button for stacked walls but it not being necessary for basic walls...
