as mentioned in another post regarding virtual edges, I have seen, that dimension to such virtual edges are not be retrieved from 3D to draft,
Same dim to a sharp edge is retrieved to draft.
Is this the same in ST9 (just updated all computers here to ST10) or is this a bug from ST10?
Probably a failing on my part, but I have never used the retrieve dimension functionality, well, in production anyway.....so can not say if this is how it was in ST9....we're on ST10 now also.

thanks for answering.
I have used the Dimension Retrieving very often (it really makes sense) but to be honest, in most cases the dims are orthogonal and this will work with ST10 too
Good morning Wolfgang,
I did a quick test in ST9 and see the same behaviour. ST9 is not retrieving dimensions of virtual edges.
thanks a lot for testing and answering.
I never realizd that thos dimension are not retrieved.
Maybe this always was exactly so, or came in with ST8,9
Anyway, it is like it is!
Thanks for helping
Slightly OT, but did you know in ST10 that retrieved PMI are fully associative? This means you can really put the intelligence in the model if you like -- if you put in tolerance in the model and treat it as the master and later change the tolerance, the dimension in the draft will update. This is pretty nice for those of you trying to get to more of an MBD (Model Based Definition) approach to things, where all the intelligence is in the model.
Yes, have seen it in the What's New, and after waiting for years this was one of my happiest moments in my SE life!
But to be honest, this also was one of those things I never ever understood, that a change in tolerances will not be reflected in the draft update.
There even was no info sign or message to show, that this happend.
So drafts run out of actuality without given any notice to the user.
Sorry to say it like this: I see this not as much as an improvement but more as an error fix!
How about an update for intersections to be driving? many times I'll draw extension lines just so I can dimension to them.
