    Default Dimensions disappearing

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello,

    I have never had this problem before I started using 3D and multiple viewports in model space. I have no idea if they are even related. I made a simple 3D model and wanted to mess around and make a few viewports in model space so I could dimension on a "top" view and a "front" view in different viewports. I dimensioned in each model space viewport. I went to paper space and froze the ones I didnt need in each of the two paper space viewports. All was fine. Later I went back to model space and some were gone. If i hovered in the area they would highlight but would not stay. Never have seen this. They were all still visible in paper space viewports so annotative was ok. Very weird. Regen and audit did not do anything. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Just a test drawing thankfully.

    Without seeing a drawing we can only guess, but it sounds as though you don't have "view annotative at all scales" turned on in model space (ANNOALLVISIBLE=1)
    I've just been down graded from 2012LT to full Autocad 2017. I WANT LT BACK
