Thanks for the replies....

I can interpret this:
1. "I double-click a constraint, but nothing happens"
2. "I double-click a constraint. A dialog shows up, I edit the value, click OK, the dialog goes away, but the constraint still displays the old value and sketch doesn't change"
3. "I double-click a constraint. A dialog shows up, I edit the value, click OK, the dialog goes away. The sketch is updated, but the model remains the same"
.....many many other variations of the above three scenarios.
Please explain in more detail.
I admit that is vague, and something I would bring to someone's attention at other software forums I visit and help users with....
So here's my exact problem. Left click on a constraint in the 3d view to select the constraint, Then in Combo view, under constraints, I scroll till I find the constraint and right click on the constraint to bring up the menu. This is what I am presented with:
The 'Change value' menu option is greyed out, not allowing me to change the value in this way.
But, thanks to DeepSOIC, I've learned another way to change the constraints values and yes, that does work.
The nice thing about posting for help on this forum is that I always learn something additional, like this:

Could someone explain the problem with my using the join tool rather than the boolean fuse? Why would the boolean fuse be better than the join tool in this case? Would these problems affect me exporting the part out into a .dxf file to send to a CNC machinist?

Yes, you can delete "Y6_UAV_Motor_mount".
Actually 'Y6_UAV_Motor_mount' is just like 'Motor_mount_final' in that file, except it doesn't have any holes in it. This is because I want this part made without holes in it, I'll drill them myself.
As I said, I'm trying to get this part made for me. So if anyone could point me in the direction of how to get a proper file export for a CNC machine shop, that would really be helpful.
