I believe you can use design checker to list them and delete from the report.
Design checker add-in must be running.
Select this option and save the stds file somewhere:
Return to drawing and on tools menu:
In task pane:
Uncheck all and click green plus and select the file you just made:
Click Check Document
I don't have any, but here is where I believe you can delete them:
I hope this helps.
wow have not had that kind of dimension problem.
Dimensions where added with insert model items? or where they placed on the drawing.
I am usually able to reattach dangling dims to the line they should be attached to. I am dealing with assemblies that we manually dimension though.
Have you tried to reattach the dim to a new line in the drawing so that it would not be dangling any more?
I'm pretty sure he's dealing with a model dimension, not one that was manually added in the drawing, so I don't believe re-attaching will work. In fact, the feature that the dimension applied to may not even be there after the edit.
I could not even select the dimensions to edit or delete them.
I accidentally selected the view and deleted that, and when I hit undo, SW crashed.
When I opened it again, I was able to delete these dangling dimensions.
I've just run into this problem on SW2018 SP4 after using the 'replace model' functionality in a drawing.
When I left-click the problem dimensions, they do not show as highlighted like they normally would.
If I double-click them, I get the same error "This dimension cannot be edited. It is a deleted dimension shown as dangling."I have stumbled across a couple ways to fix this, at least in my situation.
1. After left-click, you can press the delete key and the dimension will delete even though it is not shown as highlighted.
2. Right-click and select 'Hide' to hide the dimension. (right clicking seems to work normally for these dimensions but they are still not highlighted).
3. Delete a normal dimension, undo, then right-click a problem dimension, go to recent commands, and choose delete from there.
Hope this helps anyone who stumbles across it.
I prefer the old way of replacing the model in the drawing works so much better than the new way they came up with doing it with the drawing open.
