All created dims are dangling after ANY model change.

I'm working in 2012. I'm having a consistent problem, which is making it nearly impossible to finish a drawing. I strive to use model dims when possible, but because it's nearly impossible to get solidworks to add them everywhere even with time consuming work arounds, I use created dims sometimes. Now, if I do anything to the model, every single created dimension is now dangling in the drawing. I don't even have to actually make a change, all I have to do is view a sketch and close it without changes. The drawing needs to be rebuilt, and now every created dim is detached. No amount of leader manipulation will re-attach it. You can imagine my frustration, and how this make Solidworks basically useless.
