I just updated to ST8 MP 8, and I'm now having an issue.
Previously, I would sometimes end up getting these dotted lines coming from the coordinate dims which I had selected last, which would go away if I merely clicked on them, so it wasn't a big issue, just annoying if I didn't notice it when I printed.
But since MP8, now when I double click a coordinate dimension to copy its variable and paste into the variable table, now the dotted line doesn't go away. The only way I can get it to go away is to delete the dim and place again, which then is no longer in the variable table which is why I selected the dim in the first place.
Anyone else experience anything like this?
Can't help on the line thing but what is the meaning of this: "now when I double click a coordinate dimension to copy its variable and paste into the variable table"?
Do you mean to paste it into a formula in the variable table?
Exactly. It's usually a variable labeled as a V##### or whatever. Paste it into the formula field in the variable table.
Hmm. I don't know what the V*** actually is, it only shows while placing a dim, but on my system the default variable name is "Linear_x" for a linear dim and "Coordinate_x" for a coordinate dim, etc. Do the "V" names appear in your variable table?
Yes. And I know I can copy it directly from the variable table. I'm just accustomed to double clicking the dim to copy the variable. Been doing it that way since v17. I'm a creature of habit, and I throw a fit when I'm forced to change that for no reason other than "dammit, it's not working now"
Now I wonder why my variable name system differs from yours. Maybe it's a synchronous thing.
Edit: No, it's sketch vs. PMI names. I never really noticed before
Edit: Sorry for going off on a tangent.
Maybe you should go into your relationship assistant and uncheck tangent. That might solve that.
