One other thing I tried (but did not work) was to copy and paste each sheet into a new file. I created a new blank drawing, did a Ctrl-C on sheet one of the bad file, pasted it into the new file and it worked (copy/paste did). When I tried to do the other sheets the same way - all I got were blank sheets - no views. The copy/paste only worked on sheet 1. Is there a reason why copy/paste does not work on multiple sheets?
When I drag one of the "bad" dimensions up I get this:
After doing a Ctrl-Q - the "crud" moves up with the 2.0 dimension (in example above).
Sorry to post again but I found out what is causing it but do not know why? The dimensions that are messed up are on detail views derived from a section view which I applied a BREAK VIEW to. Below is the view "broken". Sorry for small thumbnail but I did not want to post details of the drawing:
If I un-break the view as below - the artifacts go away:
I know I can scale it down or only shown half of it but why in the world are those artifacts showing up? FYI: This broken section shown is a straight section - not aligned or multi-line.
