I have a set of Rotated Dimensions in paperspace that are graphically offset from their associated points. I have not made any changes to the viewport, model or dimensions for this layout since the last time they displayed properly. In other words I found them like this when I opened the drawing this morning.
See attached image.
DIMENSION Layer: "A-ANNO-DIMS"
Space: Paper space
Layout: ramp layout
Handle = a433
1st extension defining point: X=0'-3 5/8" Y=0'-6 7/16" Z= 0'-0"
2nd extension defining point: X= 0'-3" Y=0'-5 31/32" Z= 0'-0"
dimension line defining point: X= 0'-3" Y=0'-5 21/32" Z= 0'-0"
default text position: X=0'-3 5/16" Y=0'-5 25/32" Z= 0'-0"
dimension style: "Arch Frame"
dimension style overrides:
AutoCAD LT 2012 F.51.0.0
There is also a command calle DIMREGEN which may or maynot work.
If the DIMASSOC is turned on it may very well be snapping to points that are on another object outside of the viewport.
If DIMASSOC is turned off then it is not unusual since you may have moved objects.
Try DIMREASSOCIATE (DDA OOTB) and snap the leader/witness lines back to the points you want.
REGEN had no effect. I did not consider a RECOVER when I discovered that moving one control point, such as the text position, relaligned the dimension elements to their control points.
Neither the dimensions nor the objects they measure were moved since the last time they displayed correctly before the error. The problem seems to have corrected itself, as the error did not return when I reopened the file today. I don't understand the comment about DIMASSOC. Aren't they supposed to reassociate when DIMASSOC is turned on? Besides, I've worked with DIMASSOC=2 since forever and this is very unusual.
Sorry but I'll have to wait and see if it happens again before I can try DIMREGEN or DIMREASSOCIATE. The fact that they seemed to correct themselves after moving a control point suggests that these commands may work when and if it happens again.
