Move the section arrow like the illustration in the help shows (above image) the text doesn't move with the arrow and you can't grab it to move it manually.
It's not correct annotation practice to have the arrow on the face of the part.
I don't think the text is moving along with the arrow; however, you can freely move the text - Can you post your 2D dwg here so we can try?
Sorry, can't upload drawing. I can't select the text to move it unless I turn the view into a sketch, which negates having a 3D parametric model. If there is some setting that should allow selecting the text, I've tried everything. Double clicking the text, rebuilding the model. Deleted the view and added section before I dimensioned the view. None of it works. It worked before we applied SP4.
Please view the att. video clip - I can move the text without editing its sketch
I suspected your file is corupted ???
Can you create a new 2D dwg with a section view and try to move the text to see if you'd find the same issue?
Christian - thanks for your help. It works like it is supposed to when I create a new drawing. The drawing with the problem was started by another user here and it just won't let me move the text on the section arrows. The drawing was crammed on an A-size sheet. I just changed the sheet to a B-size and rescaled the views so the section arrow text isn't over the top of the dimensions.
There is a misconception here that everything has to be on A-size. I working to change that. thanks again for your help. We had a machinist make a part that was missing several features because the "do it on a-size" thinking caused a part to have 5 sheets and guess what, sheet 4 of 5 and 5 of 5 were lost and the machinist didn't pay attention to the title block to see that he had sheet 1 of 5, 2 of 5, 3 of 5, but not the other two.
Thanks again for your help.
So you can actually move the text, but somehow you select something else which made you think the text can't be moved
Please mark this as correct answer in case people get the same issue can search for it - Thx
