I place a new dimension with the following sequence:
Pick up dimension linear command
select start of dimension: give data point on corner of first object
select dim endpt: give data pt on cnr 2nd object
define length of xtn line: give 3rd data pt
place dim text 4th data pt
select dim endpt right click for reset (left button is data pt, centre is tentative, right is reset)
select dim endpt: pick powerselector in popped up menu
give data point in empty space
dimension, which was fully formed, just disappears.
all the above I do so fast it happens without any thinking, and the end I have nothing.
this has happend to me hundreds of times.
then, i will repeat exactly the same sequence, and it works. the dimension does not
if reset exits the command, why would the dimension disappear?
thanks for any help
after the second 'select dim endpt', a changing number and the next arm of the dim appears. after reset, that goes away,
and the dim looks finished. a menu with 'element selection, copy, move, scale, rotate...' pops up. select and command,
and the dim vanishes.

‘Reset pop-up menu’ = ‘Press and Hold’

I hope this will resolve your problem
That happened to me quite a few times, too - usually when I'm a bit hasty with the very last click. Could't find any connection to a potential program malfunction, only finger malfunction ;-).
