In ST7 it was possible to re-attach a dimension to another line or reference via the ALT key.
Now in ST8 it seems that this smart solution is disabled. Is that correct?
I see a gray and a blue dot.
When you press Alt and than select the gray dot you can reattach the dimension.
I'm having some problems here too.
Still can't find the exact "step to reproduce" so I didn't filled an IR so far.
The only thing I find is that it seems to be related, at some point, with "zooming" and/or graphics.
Some times, when I can't select the dimension connect handle to re-attach the dimension, I zoom out a little bit and then, it work properly.
Some other times, I drag the view out of the working sheet and then I can re-attach the dimension.
So, that's why I think it's "zoom", "screen refresh" and/or graphics related.

I've had some problems reattaching dimensions as well. The first draft I updated in ST8 had some detatched dimensions and I struggled getting them to reattach. I tried simply dragging them to the correct geometry and then using the alt key without luck. A little while later, on another file, everything worked fine. I'm not sure what is causing the problem. Could it be the new handles for dimensions in ST8?
