Disapearing Dimension lines

212 Views, 8 Replies

Hello

 

I have a problem with Inventor 2013. The dimension lines have disapeared and I have no idea how to bring them back. I've been through all  the  dimension styles and layers to make sure I hadn't turned one off

 

All other drawings are fine and if I create another even using the same model it works just fine but I'd rather find out why than re-do the whole drawing.

 

Thanks

 

 Here's an example of the problem

I am not using 2013 yet, but if you do a print preview are they there?

Also, I know you have checked the new dim style settings, but did you look at these settings?

Did you try a reboot?

Thanks for the quick response

 

print preview and actually printing the file shows exactly the same result as the screenshot.

 

I also tried both of these settings to no avail.

You wouldn't happen to still have 2012 running somewhere to try this would you?

If so and it shows the extention lines I would say you uncovered a bug in the software.

Sometimes you just need a good old reboot.

Thank you, I hadn't found anyone else with the same issue.

 

I also noticed that page 1 of my drawing is perfectly fine while page 2 is broken. I am starting over the drawing as it probably will be faster than trying to salvage the old one.

Maybe they'll fix it in IV 2017.
