How to display dynamic dimensions on grip editing?

A - answer AutoCAD has stopped to display temporary length-, angle- and radius- dimensions when grip editing lines and arcs in my DWG drawing.

Dynamic display of information about the selected geometry is controlled by the variable DYNMODE. Set this variable to 3.

You can also enable this dynamic display by enabling the dynamic mode in the AutoCAD status bar when the option "Enable Dimension input" is checked on the "Dynamic Input" tab in "Drafting Settings".
