Drawing issue

I have creo elements/pro 5.0, and If you add a drawing dimension to show a radius, then do an "Edit Attachment" and change it it a diameter dimension, the dimension value shows correctly, but it still shows "R" instead of a diameter symbol.

Be warned......

Re: Drawing issue

Elaborate Frank... When I edit attachment on a radius dim, I don't see the option to change it to diameter. The only method I ever knew is what abhijith suggested. This works correctly in Creo 2.

Okay, I see it now... inside the sketch, you can change a radius to a diameter. And a sketch doesn't show the R or Dia symbol. But when you go back and then Edit the feature outside the sketch, the symbol shows. You will be happy to know, Frank, this is fixed in Creo 2.0

Re: Drawing issue

You can't convert a radius dimension into diameter dimension using "Edit Attachment". Need to delete it and create again as a diameter dimension. However when you are doing "Edit Attachment" for radius/diameter dimensions make sure you are clicking in the right way. Otherwise the radius will show the diameter symbol and vice versa.

single click---> radius

double click--> diameter

I never tried it before, it had a misleading result, thought I'd warn people.

Re: Drawing issue

This was strictly with added dimensions, in the dwg. Sorry I wan't 100% clear. The guy I'm teaching put in a dimension, but he didn't know how to get a dia dim instead of a radius. I did the "Edit Attachment", and it fixed the actual numerical value, but it still had the "R" in front of it instead of the dia symbol. So, they fixed this? Cool.

Re: Drawing issue

yes, in drawings, newly added dimensions no longer have the option of changing from Dia to R or visa versa. You use the single vs double click on the feature. Editing the attachment will put the appropriate symbol on the dimension. I can only see the "change to" option in sketches.
