no more possible? Edit Associativity in a drawing

Hello community.

 

since we are use NX10 we have massive problems in drawings.

It often happens that one has to replace a model of a drawing by another version of that part. Usually all dimensions get colored brown meaning they are not associative anymore.

In earlier versions it was easy to Edit Associativitiy of Dimensions and Center lines.

 

Now we always get messages like

"Disassociated leader or origin data must be corrected before full modifications are permitted"

or

"Retained Associativity Handles Found. Remove it first."

 

I try hard but there is no way to do that. Or I just don't know what I have to do. Please see picture.

 

Please help me.

 

Many thanks

Welcome in the beautiful idea to resolve disassociate dimension.

In NX11 there is an implementation about disassociated dimension extension line, but for disassociated leader or origin, need to edit manually each dimensions.

For this case, I would like a clear tool for all disassociated origin, because for 100 disassociated dimension leader or origin is a stupid time consuming.

 
Thank you...

On Centerlines right click on the center square mark and remove all retained.

 

On dimensions.  First hold down ALT. key drag the dimension around. 

 

Or reattach your dimensions if loss of assoc.

 

We have drawings where we have to expand the view the reassoc. the dimension with the proper geometry.

NX8.5 was way better than nx10! It is a mess now! They really did a good job to make our work much harder. Dimensions cannot reattached mostly (just in rare cases it works).

On editing a disassociated dimension I now get:
Disassociated leader must be corrected before other changes can be made.

In NX8.5 I never had trouble with reassigning brown dimensions to make them alive again.

hello,

 

i do agree with you. haven't found any improvements in NX11.

and the drop down menu is no longer available. i worked almost only with this menu.
