My Paper Space Dimensioning does not work - Please Help

My part is drawn in model space.

My Title Block and Border is on Paper Space.

I have model view windows/ports depicting various views on the model space part.

In Paper Space when I try to apply a dimension, snaping to edges of the part, I get the actual distance in paper space??  Part distance is 23" and the result of the paper space dimension application is 2  3/4""  Yes, two inch marks shown too??


2012 Plant 3D server

My settings are;


Tools/Options?user Preferences - the box is checked off for "Make New Dimensions Associative"


Format/Dimstyle/Modify/Fit - Under "Scale For Dimension Features", the annotative box is not available for selection??

So I have my setting set to "Use Overall Scale to 1.0000


Whether "DIMASSOC is set to 1 or 2 , paper space dimensioning will not work correctly.


Any ideas as to what I need to do?


Thanks, G
