radius & Dia Dims & Dual demensioning

Recommended Posts

Normally in my drawings I use just the primary dimensions (set as fractions) however sometimes in the same drawing I use the secondary dim for a decimal dimension... This used to work not bad (except for the blasted brackets I always have to delete) Tollerencing the secondary dimension is a pain but possible.

In VW 9.5 when I chage a raduis or dia dimension to "dual" I can not turn off the primary dim or get to the seconday dim to delete the brackets.

Is there something I can do to make it work again?

Thanks, Heather confused.gif" border="0

Looks like a bug to me ... i'll add it to the bug list.

Does anyone else want an option for no automatic brackets on dual dims?

Whether or not it is tough isn't an issue for me (but it's often very difficult from the outside to tell how difficult something is on the inside) - i'm more concerned about adding complexity. We need compelling reasons to add anything that we add. To be compelling, it must be something lots of users would want, or a few users very much need. And it has to be more important than other things that users want since there's a finite amount of work we can do an any given release.

So: is turning off brackets something you personally would want to do, or some known dim standards would require?

No - this is core functionality that would affect all versions. But our built-in dimension standards would probably not change, it would just let you change a custom standard to not have the brackets.
