What do you think?
Barry, temp dim should show up on clicking an element as you said. In rare cases when it does not show a temp dim you can add a dimension yourself and click on that to move the element.
In AC your method would be faster than what I do for editing walls and I will practice it and use it till I can find a better way.

I am still gaining experience in using AC and have seen some users who use the marque tool to edit walls and it seems to put the selected walls in a sticky mode so they remain joined and then move them to the desired dimension.

Thanks Stuart, I use that last method you quoted allot and will try using what you and Barry suggest to avoid mental calculations for those wall moves that are not simple to work out.
I have been trying to use the slide rule and grid snaps at 5mm and 10mm intervals but it is still too slow for me.
What do you think about what I am suggesting for moving all elements and objects with a tracker pallet?

Another way I have seen some user do this is to create a temporary user origin (Alt Shift) and then move element to desired coordinate using the tracker.
