Doesn't work for me either.

I did a check back to AC 15 and
found that the function was lost with AC17
:(

3. Shift-click the Text Box of one of the selected Level Dimensions: the Level Dimension Tool still shows in the Info Box. All the Level Dimensions remain selected (selection dot in the middle of the marker).
The only way to get the Dimension Text to show in the Info Box it to select only the Dimension text, without the Level Marker being selected.
Maybe it is a Windows "feature" vs. a Mac "bug".

At step 3., when I SHIFT-click a Level Dimension Text Box, it does change to the Dimension Text in the Info Box.
But I am on Windows, so this may be a Windows vs. Mac thing indeed.
Anyway, I will report this to Graphisoft.

Hmm.
On the mac after David's 1st two steps
"1. Select Level Dimension Tool: this tool shows in the Info Box
2. Command-A (Select All Level Dim's): the Level Dimension Tool still shows in the Info Box "

I then double click on the TEXT tool and it brings up the text settings box. From there I can edit the text of the level dimensions selected.

Thanks Erika, that works (is this documented or did you find this accidentally?). Also works for Linear Dimensions, vey helpful.

Don't recall, probably something Link mentioned years ago :-)

Made a WISH to add "Dimension Origin" to level dimension settings.

Triple Seconded. by the entire ArchiCAD community in Toronto. We lobbied for this this week at the User Group Meeting. I think Ransom now understands the problem. Hopefully he can communicate that to GSHQ
