Do you mean the model shows the upper /lower limits as +0.001/-0.001 and the drawing is showing +0.1/-0.1?

What version of Creo are you using? The dialog changes with different versions.

Show pictures would help.

Hi Ken,

I don't think it's still clear as to what you are trying to do and the behavior you are seeing.  Can you please upload some images or the files, for additional information.

When you reply to the thread, click on Use Advanced Editor and you will be able to access icons to upload images, photos and on the bottom right corner, there is a link for Attach files.

Thanks

Double click the tolerance on the drawing and change it to -.005.

Your explanation is still unclear. Some screenshots would help a lot.

And is the drawing dimension created? Maybe you are referring to a model dimension you've set with the correct tolerance and a created drawing dimension that is showing a different tolerance?

It ended up files got deleted in Creo 3 and didn't allow tolerances to be modified, I was told by PDM Admin. ???
