Dimensions in worksheet

N/A
Hi,
I have created a drawing on the 2d model workspace with dimensions on their
own layer. When I create a worksheet so I can scale for printing, the
dimensions disapear. How can I get the dimensions to show up on the work
sheets?
Thanks,
Tim

Tim,
The show/hide states of the layers in 2D Model defines what can be visible
in a 2D Model View on a working sheet. A 2D Model View cannot show more than
what is shown in the 2D Model sheet that it is defined from. So a layer that
is hidden in 2D Model cannot be shown in a 2D Model view. When a 2D Model
view is created, it inherits the shown layers from the 2D Model sheet. The
layers you see under each 2D Model View will only be the list of shown
layers on the 2D Model Sheet. Each 2D Model View may have a different set of
layers hidden in the context of the 2D Model View.
To see your dimensions, you must show the layer for the dimensions in the 2D
Model sheet. If you do not want to see those dimensions in a specific 2D
Model View, you can hide the layer in that view.
Regards,
Rick B.

Thanks Rick,
I have both layers active in the 2D model. Still stumped.

Re: Dimensions in worksheet

I have it figured out.
One layer was called "Auto-hide" and when I changed it to "dimensions" the
dims appeared in the worksheets.

Tim,
Are the dimension lines there and you just can't read the actual text for the dimension
or is nothing at all showing up for the dimensions? No lines and no text?

Hi Ed,
Nothing at all was showing up. I was using the default layer names and
the "auto-hide" layer was the problem. As soon as I renamed it to
"dimensions" the dims appeared the the worksheets just like magic.
It seems that there are a lot of fine points not covered in the bulit-in
help file; if they are there I can't find them. It would be really cool
if they did something Wikipedia-like where users could enter things like
this into a database. I suppose keeping trolls out would be nearly
impossible.
