In a drawing, when you create Ordinate dimensioning, sometimes the edge/feature that is selected for the baseline dimension loses its connection.
When that happens, you cannot “Edit Attach…” and relink the ordinate baseline to that edge/feature.
As a result, your only option is to delete the baseline ordinate and as a result, ALL of the offset dimensions that reference that baseline are then deleted.
This can cause a significant delay in producing a revised drawing. I’ve lost as much as an hour, dimensioning a drawing that only lost it’s baseline dimension.
For the secondary dimensions that reference the baseline, this functionality works.
This also would be beneficial in case an engineering/draftsman realizes he/she has selected the wrong feature for ordinate dimensions. If he/she had finished dimensioning the drawing or had that pointed out in a review, what should be a 10 second fix turns into an ordeal.
