Drag dimensions bug

Recommended Posts

Now I'm getting this bug with some dimensions, even with the "associate dimensions" preference turned off. What is known, if anything, about this problem?

I have a detail with 3 dimensions. Whichever of these three I choose, when I attempt to drag to increase the offset or change the endpoints, the correct dimension is selected and can be modified in the OIP, but when I attempt to change that dimension by dragging, the first dimension created is is moved instead. I cannot modify the other two by dragging. Is this a known bug? Is this an artifact of parametrics (no parametric constraints are showing)? If so, parametrics is not working as it should.

It gets worse. I added a 4th dimension at right angles. Now the problem has shifted to focus on this dimension. What is worse, I cannot undo an action when this bug asserts.

Okay - turned off "associate dimensions" in document preferences, and things work properly. This option does not appear to work in a useful way, given the above behavior.

Yeah, I have a problem with my data display bar changing to all angle instead of dimensions. Quitting & restarting fixes it, but some days it might happen two or three times.

These both sound like bugs and probably should be submitted.
