Attach dimensions

Hello All,

just started using ST8. I am finding difficult to attach the dimensions after updating copied draft. It worked fine in ST7. I have attached the file for reference.

 

Thanks

Kevin

Re: Attach dimensions

Hello TBD,

I am reattchaing dimensions. I always copy lots of drawings and then reattach dimensions to save considerable time in drafting. I am very disappointed if they have taken it off.

Re: Attach dimensions

So is the attach icon gone? Also, can anyone replicate this? Right now i don't have 8 loaded to see. We also do a lot of copy's of drawings. I just got done with a job where i copied it all.

Re: Attach dimensions

I thought the attach icon had been gone a while.  When I run into detached dimensions (brown) I usually just grab the handle and drag it back to the appropriate location.  I've been doing it this way for several releases.

Re: Attach dimensions

The attach command still there in ST7. That's how i use it. I have a key board short cut for. I don't like the othere way

Re: Attach dimensions

Holding Alt while grabbing the dim attachment point will also let you snap the dim to the new geometry.

Re: Attach dimensions

The alt / drag is not working for me in ST8 either when re-attaching dims, although it does work for callouts. I just located the Attach Dim icon in this release out of necessity. 

Re: Attach dimensions

The "Attach Dimensions" icon is still there in ST8. Haven't tried to use it yet though.

Re: Attach dimensions

so i can assume the Attach icon works?
