I'm using V20 of Solid Edge. I have a drawing with two parallel lines 5mm apart,but at an angle of 25 degrees. When I want to put the dimension between them on the drawing it's a very hit and miss process.Sometimes when I use the dimension tool and hold the shift key down it will give me the correct measurement at 90 degrees to the lines,but mostly all I can get is the horizontal or vertical distance regardless of whether I use the shift key or not. I can't understand why sometimes it works,but mostly it doesn't and it's very frustrating to me. What is the correct way. Regards,Allan Waterfall.
