Cannot select components in drawing to dimension

Hi there,


I have an assembly of a pipe route with various valves and other inline components. I have made a drawing from the assembly and used the break command in order for it to fit better in the drawing sheet. When I come to dimension valve positions I am unable to select certain parts. Other parts are fine, I can apply centre lines, centre marks and dimensions with no problem.

I think the break command has confused the drawing. When I select a part in the feature tree a faint box appears in the drawing view where the part is. The parts which are fine have the box around them. The other parts do not, instead the faint box is drawn in what looks like the position it would be had I not used the break command.

Has anyone ever experience this issue and solved it? I don't really want to have to start the drawing again as I having been working on it the last 2 hours. So if anyone can save me it would be very much appreciated.
