Is there a switch/option that turns the Retrieve Dimension command off/on? The reason I am asking is that I have used this command in the past but now when I select a view, using the command, nothing happens.
Start the command and look on the Command Bar.
Make sure you you are not in Remove Dimensions mode.
Yes, I made sure that this options is not selected. I am sure if has worked in the past that I must have changed a setting somewhere else that I did not catch.
As long as there are dimensions created in the model on planes that are parallel to the the drawing view and as long as you have the correct Retrieve options set, they should come in.
