We are having occasional problems with dimensions and center
lines being offset from the object.
In general the "offset dimensions" problem is a group of dimension
object (such as lines or dimensions) will be maybe 1/2" away from
the object they should be connected to. It may be all of the
dimensions on a view, or more likely just a portion of them. This
"offset dimensions" problem is something we don't see when the
dimensions are first created. I am not clear if they appear when
first opening a drawing that had been dimensioned during a previous
edit, or by changing between open documents.
I haven't personally observed if the values for the dimensions are
correct or not. But, a coworker says they were not updated when he
made a change. So, perhaps once they become offset, they are no
longer associative to the model.
This problem is a critical issue, because it means drawing
dimensions are not reliable.
Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas about the trigger for this
I just got some feed back from my dealer. He said that this
was identified as a regression in 2009 SP2 referenced as SPR
#474111, fixed in 2010. A work around was to change the sheet
format of the drawing, and that would fix the problem after it
Also, another update is that we no longer thing the dimension
values are incorrect. That was an incorrect understanding as we
were initially evaluating the bug.
