NX10 - DRAFTING: Inherit do no longer copy appended text?

Legend

Hello everyone

 

Sanity check call here: can somebody tell me if in Pre-NX9 versions the "inherit dimension settings" tool also copy appended text in dimensions? I seem to remember it was the case for NX8 and 8.5 but I need to be sure before investing time to submit an IR.

 

Thanks in advance

this issue was reported by PR 7557423 and is fixed in NX11.0. Unfortunately it is not fixed in NX10.

Thanks RonY! I am glad it is fixed in NX11 because it is driving me crazy.

With the introduction of the new dimension user interface in NX 9, the Inherit function did not automatically inherit the appended text of an existing dimension. This is fixed in NX 11.  To quickly add appended text to other dimensions in NX 9 & NX 10, do this:

 

1. Right-click the existing appended text and select Edit Appended Text.

2. In the Appended Text dialog box, in the Dimension group, make sure Select Dimension is highlighted.

3. Now click any other dimension to add the appended text.

Wow! I wasn't aware of this technique! Thanks for the tip DEckhoff! It will do for now. What I don't like the most is to not be able to do it on the fly while creating the dimension. I will be patiently waiting for NX11.
