Dimensions vanishing!?


Hi everyone...


Does anyone else have this problem?

I have a file which references another of a steel structure. I then copied each part into a layer of it's own and laid up a sheet with each part... went through each one and dimensioned it up... took ages... and then exported to pdf's and emailed them off.


The client phoned me to quiz some dimensions, and I've looked at the PDFs, all dimensioned up and nice... opened the file up and there's missing dimensions (Specifically Chain dimensions and Ordinal ones)

The regular dimensions are still there.... when I go to re-add them it mentions making the classes up to date  so I can see the new dimension...

Now this usually happens when you have the dimension class switched off... but the regular dimensions are still visbile?!?! Even when you say yes, and start adding the dimensions, the original ones don't come back.


Very odd, and I can't seem to replicate it, but it has happened to a fair few files now.


Any ideas?
