ACA Dimension Overrides not working - 2013

201 Views, 2 Replies

Has anyone experienced this with the new 2013 version?  I am trying to override a dimension to provide a +/- at the end of one ACA dimension.  I added the override, but it is not showing up - even after a regeneration...

 

Anyone confirm this on their 2013 version or is it just me...

 

Thanks

How are you applying this override?  I was able to go into the properties and override the value along with "+/-" within the measurement itself in ACA2013.  Are you using a custom style and would it be possible to see a copy of this DWG with this example for testing and viewing?

It was only apparent on one particular ACA string - it worked fine on the rest.  I just deleted that string and recreated it and was able to apply the over-ride.  Must of been just a bug with that one string - the problem hasn't shown up on any other strings since...

 

Chalk it up to a buggy dimension string.
