I want to export Dimxpert dim. in drawing .As i show in pic . I want to show the diameter in front view
But i cant change the Annotation view to front .
You will need to click on the dimension and then select the leaders tab while it is highlighted. There is a toggle option for parallel or perpendicular to axis. You want to select the parallel option and it will allow you to display the dim on the front view.
I hope this helps.
I use 2016 . which version are you use ?I dont have toggle option for parallel or perpendicular to axis
I use 2016 as well. I hadn't realized this but you need to choose the options in the correct order to get the ability to place the dimension as you've shown in your first post.
I'm not sure I'm understanding your post, but you can right-click the annotation and click "Select Annotation View"
Then pick your new view.
When i do that (right-click the annotation and click "Select Annotation View" ) the SW dont have an option as front view
Solidworks is weird in that it will assume your annotation view based on your desired dimension type. If you want a diameter/radius callout with a bent leader like the image below, then that can only be perpendicular to the face, which in this case is the bottom annotation view. Unless you change the display style of the dimension, this cannot be moved to another view.
Once the dimension is chosen to be "Linear" then it can be moved between front (parallel to axis) and top (perpendicular to axis). It's a bit clunky in my opinion but that's what I've figured out by messing with the settings.
Hello Alex Burnett,
Thank you for adding the detail to make this happen.
Do what Alex said, Then do what Kevin mentioned. Click on linear then you will have parallel to axis available.
This is a screenshot from 2016
Right click on the dim and select Annotation View "Front" (it will be available now).. Your dimension will then disappear so you will have to make that visible.
Then i try to insert the dimension in drawing in the general table by double click , but when in insert dimension ، the tolerance be disappeared . This is the picture
According to the help literature, this should automatically show the same elements as the original dimension. When I click the dimension on my print, it shows correctly with tolerances. However, when I click out of the cell everything disappears and it only shows the dimension in primary units. It removed the dual dimension and the tolerance that was applied.
2017 SOLIDWORKS Help - Dimension and Geometric Tolerances in General Tables
There are several post in the froum about this problem(Dimension tolerance won't show in table when linking cell to show dimension text... ,Linked dimension not showing secondary units ,...................
But there is not any solution ....
I want to use the drawing for manufacturing line . Now i have to write the tolerance manually.!!!!
Any one can help me ?

I don't know what to tell you, it's working for me:
There are text alignment issues which aren't corrected by cell justification changes.
And sometimes the cells didn't automatically resize enough, so I had to resize manually.
I double-click a cell then pick the dimension/callout.
Sometimes a Ctrl+Q is required.
That's interesting. It must have been corrected between our respective versions (2016 sp5). My guess is that Adel Taheri Aval does not have a version of SW that this is corrected.
I can't find an SPR for it indicating that it's been fixed recently but I am not good at searching for them.

His profile states SW2016, sp3.

As I posted above, I think it's because this issue has been fixed in a SolidWorks version after your current version.
I'm on SW2018, but it could have been fixed in SW2017, too. I don't know.
Alex Burnett replied above that he couldn't find an SPR so perhaps you can contact your VAR and ask them if this has been fixed for your 2016 version and if so, how to get it applied.
Other than that, the only other option I can see is to upgrade to SW2018.
