Mounting Bosses Dimension issue

Builder

While using the Mounting Bosses, I was unable to locate them in the sketch step using the Smart dimension tool. I could dimension to other lines in the sketch, just not the bosses. Has anyone else had a problem similar to this?

I am able to reproduce the situation you described.

After starting the Smart Dimension, when I pick the Boss circle first to locate its center, it won't pick.

If I first pick a reference, like an edge or sketch and then locate the center of the boss circle, it does pick. This was consistent so I am also able to verify this.

 

Alternatively, using the Distance Between command lets me pick the boss center first, consistently.

I had tried picking edges first, and I also tried using the Distance Between command too. Neither worked for me. 

Thank you though.

Make sure your Keypoints filter is set to allow that type of keypoint...

Just installed MP8, and now everything is working correctly.
