ST8 coordinate dimensions auto-adjust?


Stupid question day, so take it easy on me................


I've used ST9 at home, and did a gearbox draft with a lot of coordinate dimensions, and they would auto-adjust when they were close together, don't know another way to explain it. Lines would move over to make room for dimensions too close.


I'm stuck on ST8 at work, for now. How in the world can I get coordinate dimensions to adjust when they are close to each other? Yes, I can go in and do each one individually, but is that the best that ST8 offered?


Betreff: ST8 coordinate dimensions auto-adjust?

Hi @Trikefreak



sorry, just answered Your question but it was not saved back here.


So doing it again a second time.


The Automatic Jogging was introduced to Solid Edge with ST7, so it should be just the same for ST8 and/or ST9


There is one setting within dimensions option tab which will controll that.





If this value is set to ON then coordinate dimension will create their  jogs automatically, also when moving such a dimension later.

If not, then You also can do it manually by selecting this dimension and clicking with pressed ALT key onto the position of the dim line where You want the jog
