    How to keep measure boxes on screen??

    Giannis Gennarakis

           Hi there!!

       

      I want to export an image of an assembly with all the distances of the assembly on it. I 've searched online and found that I can take a snapshop through solidworks (though that feature appeared inactive on my menu) but my main problem is that when I measure a distance with the measure tool (evaluate) the box that appears with the distance, cannot be retained on the screen. The smart dimension doesn't work either. It would be very nice if it stayed on the screen, measure all the distances and then export a snapshop nice & easy. I've done that plenty of times using the software 3d-tool. I don't know why it doesn't work here. If you have any other way in mind to export an image with all the distances, I'd be glad to hear..

       

          Thanks in advance!!

       

      P.S. The assembly I want to measure must be sectioned by 2 sides (back and front) in order to measure it correctly.
