Snap Line Drawing Issue

Hello,

Has anyone ever ran into an issue with not being able to snap objects to snaplines in your drawing?

I've got a case where some of my notes and balloons will snap and others don't.

 

Perhaps it's a glitch or bug.

 

I attached a screenshot for clarity.

The note/dim/sym/etc. needs to be assigned to the view in which the offset lines are assigned.

 

It appears you have multiple views with one set of offset lines.  Symbol "4" is on the view snap lines are created, the others are on a different view and will not connect to the same offset lines,


There is always more to learn in Creo.

Thanks kdirth! That did the job. I didn't think about the Snap-Line relationships to the views.

Snap lines are great...until they don't work.  Some items will never snap to them, and some snap to them sometimes, and not others.

 

One enhancement I would like to see is preventing dims in one view from snapping to snap lines in OTHER views, or other portions of views.  IMO, you should be able to drag the length of the snap line and have ONLY the dims in that view ONLY snap to the visible length of the snap line.  As it is, it seems like the power of snap lines extends to infinity.  But I digress...
