There seems to be a bug with the frame generator in 2012. When using the frame generator, the G_L parameter in each part should always update based on the line that it is attached to from the skeleton. Well in 2012, the frame member's length will update (the B_L parameter updates), but the G_L parameter will no longer update, it stays at its original value from when it was first placed.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I've attached the file as an example. The Height of the skeleton was originally 121.370 in, and now it is 82 in. The parameter for the outside vertical legs will not update from 121.370 in to 82 in. I've tested this a few times with the same results.

The Inventor 2012 Hotfix for this issue is now available from the Data & Downloads site:
how have you got 2012? I can only assume its the beta copy and you are posting here cos the beta has ended? which doesn't make much sense because you are likely to get some help from the beta site than here.
Inventor 2012 is available for download to subscription customers. I downloaded mine Tuesday.
I can confirm this on a new FG Assembly. I started with a height of 122, created the components, saved, exited and reopened. B_L changes, but G_L does not.
I'll do the same...
