    Metric Ordinate Dims in Detail View on Different Sheet from Parent

    Bjorn Sorenson

      I use ordinate dimensions quite a bit and recently started using metric units on my drawings.  I have a detail view that is on a different sheet from the parent view, and found a way to get my ordinate dimensions to start at the zero even though the zero is not in the detail view (from https://forum.solidworks.com/message/125854).  However, with the metric dimensions, there is a leader line between each dimension, and I can't get rid of the leader trailing off the sheet that connects the zero to my first dimension without losing my first dimension.  Any suggestions?  (I've attached a simplified example of the problem.)
