Well, I am stumped. I'm running 2017 sp4.0 with the hot fix and I getting an issue of my dimensions disappearing on my sheet metal flat pattern (only that view). I've searched the forums but it seems no one has seen this, so I know I have a setting wrong.
Basically what is going on, most of the dimensions I place on the flat pattern will disappear after a rebuild is complete. They can be placed without issue, moved as as any other day of making drawings. Do a rebuild and the work disappears.
Things I have checked:
-Layers the dimensions and view are inserted on that are active and visible.
-View sketch visibility is on. I know this would make the other views dimensions not show/show depending how this is toggled. This goes along with the rest of the items in this drop down menu.
-Used Hide/Show Annotation command, no dimensions.
-Deleted the view and reinserted the view
-Deleted the flat pattern configuration and then reinserted the view (to make Solidworks make the flat pattern) into the drawing.
-Closed restarted Solidworks
-Restarted my computer
I attached a zip file that contains the drawing and model of the part I am having the problem with.
So in the end, I am no sure what to do. This needs to be dimensioned but everything but a few will stay after the rebuild. Hopefully this is a setting I can change and I do not need to redraw the part as I will not have it much longer to redraw from...
