how to have dimensions locked by default once i modify the value

By varun on 14 Feb 09:58 5 answers 5 comments

in creo / pro e sketcher
when ever i modify a value of a dimension , its still can be changed when i tried to move the entities through mouse.
and it can be locked by right clicking the dimension and set to lock
yet its annoying to set every dimension to locked

i what to know whether there is a possibility to change any setting , so that when even i set a value for a dimension , the geometry should be locked and should not alter when its dragged with mouse.
