Dimension existing solid edge drawings?

N/A

I thought this free 2D tool would be a great free viewer for my vendors to open Solid
Edge drawings and add dimensions as they needed them.
However, when you open Solid Edge drawings with the Free 2D tool, you cannot dimension
to view geometry.
Is there a way around this? Is this a bug?

It is not a bug as it was done intentionally to prohibit you from using it
as a detailing tool for Solid Edge models.

How about using the pdf file and they can open measure (i thiunk) markup and return
the pdf to you with comments using XpresReview. I think the measurement is aproximate.
You set it's scale by measuring another dimention and entering the value it should
be. Have alook at this pdf for some info on it and the other colaberation tools
they have.
