That definitly looks like the symbol on the right side of the mouse. When I would click on the dimensions they wouldn't hide or change.
I ended up deleting all the dimenions that had the changed setting and redoing them.
Thanks for your help though
One of our users pointed this out to me as well. I have not personally experienced it.
Any SolidWorks gurus out there who can explain why this cursor shows up when hovering over certain dimensions???
This questions was also posed in this post: SolidWorks Cursor feedback icon , with no resolution either.
That cursor shows up when you are inserting model items into the drawing. It allows you to move (left mouse button) or hide/show (right mouse button) the dimensions you are inserting. Here is a link to the help file: 2014 SOLIDWORKS Help - Model Items
I appreciate you tracking that down. However, in our case, this was showing up when the Model Item PropertyManager wasn't active. And it would appear when you hovered over certain dimensions, but not others.
Still a mystery.
Can you recreate this on command? If you can, I would recommend that you talk to your VAR. SolidWorks should not be doing that unless you are in the "Insert Model Item" process. I looked at the SolidWorks Knowledge Base and found an SPR on this issue. This is a rather new "bug" number.
Dimension - DRW (Edit, Revise, Loca
Summary:If hover the mouse over the dimension of a drawing view of this drawing, the mouse pointer is displayed as hide/show pointer.
I had this cursor show up also when I was NOT in Insert Model Items.
To correct this, enter into the insert model items process again, and just press the red X! (I think it's kind of a 'make it to go back into the process and re-close the process', haha;)
Hope that works, btw I'm using 2014.
