NX11 Measurement Expressions Not Visible in the Expressions Editor

My company jumped from NX8.5 to NX11 a couple of months back and I'm still wracking my brain as to why so many tools and features that were easily accessible are now burried so deep that you can almost never find them.

 

One item that I just absolutely do not understand is why measurement expressions are hidden completely.  In the expressions tool i have it to show all expressions and to show all groups yet it states that it's only displaying 70 of 83 expressions.  I have a need to use these measurements as we've set up in the past but I am unable to find them.

 

Any help?  This has been extremely frustrating, as has drafting - but that's a whole 'nother topic in itself.

Try turning on the "show locked formula expressions" option. Measurement expressions are locked, meaning you cannot edit the formula directly.

That was it!

 

Thank you for the that, I didn't even think of them being considered "locked" by NX.
