Genius

Hi

How to make this annotations / balloons / measures affecting I call it: "super cling" disappear ? See photo the orange dotted line that locks placings up like osnapping-way.

Hi,

I am not sure if this helps your case but can you try the F5 key. Or else MENU/VIEW/OPERATION/REGENERATE WORK.

Best Regards

Why some measures cling and stay clinged ?
Usually I can mouse drag&drop measures where I want but when "orange cling" happens it kind of locks the movement to step wise.

ok ....Try using ALT (press ALT while dragging the measure/annotation) .

The "clinging" lines are the dimension margins. They can be turned off in your preferences, if you want.

I've had users complain about these.  The margin control seems to have increased in later versions, early on it only locked on to other dimensions, but in NX9 it likes to lock onto the margin distance more.  Maybe it's just me, but I've noticed it more in NX9.

 

I believe these are the prefs you referenced:

"Maybe it's just me, but I've noticed it more in NX9."

 

IIRC, dimension margins were introduced in NX 9.

As I posted, the defaults for the offsets are there, but is there an on/off toggle for the users that hate it, and don't instinctively go for the alt key?  or can they be set to 0 to be "off"?

Setting the value to zero may work (I've not tried that), but since that is in the customer defaults, it will only apply to new parts created with the "blank" template. The option I was referring to is in the dimension dialog (alignment -> position on margin). If you have "dialog memory" enabled, the "position on margin" option will remain off until you re-enable it.
