I am able to add jog points to notes and balloons but not dimensions. Is there a document settings that needs to be turned on?
Linear dims only, I think. I believe it's because the radius dimensions point to the center.
Does the jog function work properly by now? I never got moving the jog to work, it would always create a mile long dimension line.
I've never had trouble with it. Are you talking linear dimensions?
I think it was the case for radial dimensions.
There is no option for adding jog points for linear dimensions either.
With linear dimensions you need to right-click a leader line, not just the dimension.
Same with diameter leaders.
THANK YOU. This brings a new issue. The radius dim with the jog point now pushes / floats the dimension. Any idea there?
Try picking the dimension and editing its leader such as this:
While on leaders, Is there a logical reason why I can't set the document to "break leaders" and instead have to manually set each one?
In addition to Jim's observation, must I edit every dimension, then select a new tab, then check a box? Can I not add a shortcut to my "S" key?
Jim Steinmeyer, I suspect since leaders are broken only in a small number of instances they are defaulted to not being broken. That being said I don't know why this couldn't be a setting that could be changed by the user.
I know of two somewhat involved bypass, but should work by making your dimension act like a note, jogs and all. But still updating with the dimension as it changes.
Bypass 1 -
Make a new view in your drawing and set a dimension to what you want. Then when you make the note, click on that dimension and the note will use the value of that dimension, even update with it I think.
The new drawing view, just shrink down and move it off of the paper space so it does not print with the rest of the drawing. This size of the drawing view should not affect the link between it and the note.
Bypass 2 -
Make a note in your drawing, then tie the value of that note to a the dimension in your model. The tool is in your note properties window, see the red circled function in this picture.
In your part/assembly, you will have to go into the equations and make a named equation equal a dimension in your model. Then make a property of your part/assembly that uses the value of that equation. Then you can link that file/assembly property to your note.
