Can a note or other annotation be grouped with a dimension in SW 2010? I know that previous versions used to allow this (as long as the note and dimension were in the same view), but I can't figure out how to do this in 2010.
I know you mentioned the entities being in the same view, but you might look at that specifically one more time. What if you try it on a blank drawing with no views? Put a line on it, dim it, put a note there, and try to group.
You asked one coworker to try - how about others? If you rename the HKCU key do you get the same thing?
I just tried it again and it seems to work fine for me. I have the Group items on the S hotkey and I find that I can't get to them as long as the new Palette is displayed. Maybe that's what you are seeing happening?
Hi, Wayne. Thanks for the input. I don't think that's the problem I'm seeing. I have tried accessing the Group command through the menu bar and the right mouse button, but neither of those works when I have a dimension selected, even if I move the mouse away from the dimension to make the Palette go away. If I have two notes selected, I can get to the Group command through either method. I even tried adding the Group button to my S key to see if I could copy your success, but to no avail.
I asked one of my coworkers about it, and he could not get it to work either, at least not in the way that he and I were used to it working. We installed off the same adminstrative image, so maybe we both have a weird setting selected?
I tried all but the HKCU key because I wasn't sure how to find the key. Having no success, I contacted my VAR. Turns out I needed to upgrade from SP2.1 to SP3.1. I did so and grouping is back to normal.
Thanks for all your suggestions!
what a pain! We are still at SP2 and could really use this! Other cool trick is you can drag a note onto a dimension and make it dissappear!
We have alot of seats, so upgrading is always a hassle with creating a new admin image...
