Is there a way to force Inventor to dimension without snapping to various Z heights within a drawing view? I have basic top and side views created however when trying to dimension overall lengths and widths i'm snapping to high and/or low points of the model and getting scewed dimensions. Apprciate anyones thoughts.

I have never seen this behavior before?
Can you attach file(s) here that exhibit this behavior?
Are you using Projected Dimensions or are you using True Dimensions?
As JD mentioned, your views are set to show the true length between selected entities and since the "2D" views are really 3D models positioned behind the sheet, you get unexpected values. Right click each of the ortho views and change the dimension type for the view.
