Dimensions which disappear

Hi,

i noticed a trouble on drawings of instances of family table.

1) I have a generic model A and a instance B of generic model A.

2) I create a drawing with model A and i add dimensions in drawing. I save and i close drawing.

3) I open drawing with A and save a copy. I close drawing with A and i open the copy.

4) I change model in drawing with instance B. I delete dimensions from drawing and i save and i close.

5) I reopen drawing with A and dimensions disapper.

Anyone can help me? Dimensions are jointed to model and not to drawing? I not retrive dimensions from model. I create manually.

Thank you,.

You need to use the config setting "create_drawing_dims_only" and set to yes

or

Erase the dimension from the second drawing instead of deleting it.

When you create a dimension in a drawing it can be added to the model, based on the configuration setting above. By copying the drawing you copied the reference to the dimension. When you deleted the dimension on the second drawing, you deleted the dimension that was stored in the model so the first drawing could no longer find it in the model.

If you set the config "create_drawing_dims_only" to yes, dimensions that are added afterwards will be part of the drawing and not in the model, so there is no reference to lose.

If you erase the dimension from one drawing, it only affects its display and won't remove it from the model or the drawing and won't remove it from other drawings.
