1-Draw a single line and enable parallel line.
2-Click on line to create a parallel line.
3-Go to dimension and see "Distance" dimension is greyed out it doesn't work.

Distance tool is active if switch on "Modes\Auto add constraints" options.
Tool uses constraint manager

One thing I have wondered is.  why does the tool not create any constraint markers (Block marks), if the objects do not already contain markers.  These are normally a visual indication that two objects are constrained together.

It should show a variable name (if enabled) like other constrained dimensions
