I am having problems placing and then adjusting linear dimensions. When trying to adjust the leaders I get a "1 was not parallel to the ucs" error and cannot make any adjustments.
was still looking for a fix to this and found this thread .. http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-MEP/can-t-mo
I made a video recording of the problem .. http://screencast.com/t/gcviWQ300iw
Seems to me I have run into this problem, but can't remember when. At any rate, if you use point filters for dimensioning a 3D object in 2D space, the dimension should behave on the same plane.
so far the best/easiest fix/workaround I have found is to lock the Z coord to 0 by setting OSNAPZ=1
I use the 'replace Z with current elevation' button on the lower right
never had this issue in 2012
I am having the exact same issue. No problems till 2013 for me. When I snap a linear dimension into place and try to modify its endgrips or even the text grips...the ucs changes and I have to set the ucs back to world. Has anyone found why or how to fix yet? Thanks
I also keep getting a dialog stating "non-unitary UCS Y axis: normalizing" when working with newly placed dimensions, and clicking OK doesn't fix the problem as the dialog keeps coming back.
real PITA as I have to delete the dim and redraw each time this happens
Help Please !!
Just got back from lunch with another cad manager with a different company and they too are having the problem. I will post if a solution comes about.
Would you please share one drawing to me for investigation?
then we have clearer understanding of this issue.

Exact same for me as in the video. Sent a screenshot and file to Autodesk this morning. Hopefully they can replicate the problem.
