I seem to recall being able to do this in 2013...
Say you've dimensioned something but end up wanting to change the dimension definition points...drag the end point to another location that you want dimensioned.
I thought it used to snap to a new location, but now it will not. I have to redraw the dimension (including all text I added).
Here is what I get when I try to move the dimension definition point:
Here is what I get when I try the auto-reattach feature in "repair". Still nothing to snap to.
Am I going crazy? Was it always like this? Or am I just thinking of AutoCAD? Seems like this would be a necessity here.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In general there should be no problem to reattach dimension to other geometry. This can be dataset specific problem. Can you please post here dataset sample with the steps to reproduce the problem? We will take a look at this.
Dang it, that's exactly what I did. I had "body" selection because I was hiding solid bodies in my shrinkwrapped background assembly. Thank you so much!
I feel like the dimension snaps ought to work regardless of what the selection tool says...but that's just me.
