I'm using Inventor 2011 and I can't figure out how to set my dimension settings so it breaks the dimension extension lines automatically when crossing over other dimension extension lines. I saw that others say it just happens, but it is not "just happening" for me. Can someone explain how to set my dimensions so when dimension lines cross each other one of them automatically breaks?
In 2011 (and 2012), extension lines only break around dimension text. I've never seen them break around other extension or dimension lines.
That is unfortiunate. So I guess there is no way to break them? In regular AutoCAD (haven't used it in a while but I used 2008, I think) you exploded dimensions and could adjust them however you wanted after you exploded them.
Hi, there was a logged a WISH item for that (DID#924303). I have added your comments to the defect.
Does that mean next time they make a new version of Inventor they might consider adding the ability to explode dimensions so you can break dim lines around each other manually?
