I'm not sure if I'm doing something stupid here or if SolidWorks has a bug:
When you enter negative dimension values, the sign for this dimension changes in all configurations.
Is this by intention? I don't think so.
Attached please find my simple sample project demonstrating the issue.
First, I ...
- create two configurations,
- create a sketch,
- create a line in the sketch,
- add a vertical and a horizontal dimension to it,
- configure both dimensions to be configurable.
This is configuration 1:
This is configuration 2:
Next, I edit one of the dimensions to change its direction by entering a negative value (or, alternatively, by clicking the direction button left to the primary dimension value):
Doing so, the corresponding dimension now points to the other direction:
When I now switch over to the other configuration, the corresponding dimension also switched direction, but this is not by intention:
Does anyone know a remedy for this? Did I do something wrong?
