View Boundry - dimensioning

Dimensioning:

When picking an edge of a part (while dimensioning on a detail view) the dimension will pick the very edge of the part which usually happens to be "way off page"; instead of sliding off the view boundry.

 

This seems to be happening since the install to ST8. Previously(to ST8) the dimension would come off the edge of the detail view boundry (which is what im looking for).

 

**Any suggestion would be great

I assume pulling the endpoint of the extension line back down is not accetable and you are hoping that when placing the dimension it behaves as one would anticipate so the end point wouldn't need to be pulled back?  Sounds like it needs to be submitted as an IR to GTAC.

Correct Fritz,

This happens all the time. I was really hoping someone would say to "click this button" and it would magically be fixed. Surely im not the only one that has this issue.

Hi,

 

Could you record a video about steps? I couldn't reproduce your issue.

Just to update......incase anybody else has encountered this issue.

 

After filing in IR and communicating with GTAC we found a solution. I simply updated to ST8 mp5! I should have (and usually do) tried this first but been a little to busy to even give it a thought.

Hi,

 

Yes, I use it (MP5), so everything was correct!
