I have tried using the auto jog feature, but cannot get it to work. If I have already placed the coordinate dimensions and I set the auto jog feature on in the dimension properties tab for coordinate dimensions, the dimensions will stay on top of each other. If I place a new coordinate dimension the setting for auto jog is off, so they stack up on top of each other. I do not want to use Automatic Coordinate Dimension, because doing so crashes Solid Edge and I only want a few points dimensioned.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What version are you using? I'm using ST8 and when placing coordinate dimensions manually, they automatically jog...
I have to place them, edit the properties to enable auto jog, change the origin to another dimension, and then they auto jog. I cannot find a way to have auto jog enabled before placing the dimensions.
Greg, open the Style command and find the Dimension style you are using and modify it. On the "Lines and Coordinate" tab in lower right section of "Coordinate", check "Enable automatic jogging".
