    cannot pick bend lines in a drawing

    Mark Greenwell

      Hi,

       

      Has the work flow for dimensioning to a bend line changed in Ver 2013.

       

      Before I could select an edge then select an end point, or the bend line itself to dimension.

       

      For some reason in 2013 I can select the edge but it does not highlight either an end point or the bend line for my second selection.

       

      All I can do is select somewhere near the line to create a dimension.

       

      Is there a setting that needs to be checked somewhere?

       

      Attached is a drawing with a flat patten to get the dimension I select edge of plate then select somewhere near the bend line ( it comes out at correct dimension 315.5mm).

       

      Could someone see if it works as before on there computer?

       

      Please note that I have taken proprietary info off drg and also drawing is not yet complete.

       

      Thanks
