ST8 - Re-attach DIM via ALT key

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?

Weird, I don't see a red one and after many tries it is still impossible.

Thanks anyway

I see a gray and a blue dot.

When you press Alt and than select the gray dot you can reattach the dimension.

I will reinstall SE (again). It is strange that you all can do it and I can't.

Re: ST8 - Re-attach DIM via ALT key

Hi,

 

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.

 

Regards,

I cannot believe that it should be a 'zoom' problem.

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?
