unvisible dimensions in draft

N/A

I can't see the dimensions in the draft of an assembly.
I can see the arrowos, I can change styles, font size, everything, but the numbers are not displayed.
I'm using ST4.

Any hint?

thank you

Click on a dimension
You should see a task bar open up. Towards the top right is an X
button. Click this and the drop-down shows dimension types. The usual
is "Nominal" but the last option is "Blank". If this latter has been
selected the dimension will be "blank". Select Nominal and the
dimension should show up.
This might be the problem . If so, this is the hint!

Unfortunately this doesn't work.
Quote is already set as nominal.
My ST4 is a fresh installation.
Also training files have unvisible dimensions, even if their previews in opening dialog box seem to show them.

Mario,
do you see any text on your drawings?
Can you see the content of a text box or a note, a balloon, or anything like this?
If not, then it might be a missing font issue and you should try to use a different font.
Maybe something went wrong during installation of the Solid Edge fonts ?!

Martin,
thank you for your help.
Actually I couldn't see any text.
I already checked Solid Edge fonts thinking they were missing, but they are there.
Changing the fonts I can see the dimensions.
You are right: something went wrong during installation because fonts are there but they are not displayed by Solid Edge.
I don't know if ther is an installation log to pass to Solid Edge developers for debugging.
I will look for it.
Thank you again
