    Why do fake dimensions appear on my model after I save it as a 3D PDF?

    Tim Lewis

      Every time a save a model as a 3D PDF, any existing dimensions get made visible.  These dimensions cannot be selected or changed in any way.  They are just visible.  Changing visibility settings does not change their visibility, nor does rebuilding the model (using either Ctrl-Q or any other method).  Furthermore, the only way I've been able to find so far to reliably get rid of them is to close and reopen the file.  You can view a screen recording demonstrating the behavior here: http://autode.sk/1OSJAVV.  I would very much like to figure out how to prevent this from happening, so anyone's ideas would be very welcome.

       

      P.S. I am using the most recent version of SolidWorks 2015 Professional on the most recent version of Windows 7.
