UG v18 - Drawing Object Associativity

UG v18 - Drawing Object Associativity

UG v18 - Drawing Object Associativity

I'm having trouble editing a drawing in that when I select Edit > Drawing Object Associativity and select a dimension, I get an error message saying "Cannot edit associativity for sketch dimension".  What would be causing this and how can it be solved?

Thanks in advance.

RE: UG v18 - Drawing Object Associativity

To change that dimension you will have to go into the sketch. Drawing object associativity is for dimensions and symbols added in the drafting module (those not in sketches).

RE: UG v18 - Drawing Object Associativity

Sorry, the original message wasn't very clear.  The dimensions were created in UG Drafting.

RE: UG v18 - Drawing Object Associativity

The dimensions where placed on the drawing in drafting using associative dimensioning to the sketch dimensions. Can't remeber the icon name. These dimensions are driven from the sketch directly and can only be changed by chnaging the sketch driving dimensions.

RE: UG v18 - Drawing Object Associativity

To clarify a bit further, the dimensions were created in UG Drafting using Insert > Dimension etc., not Insert > Model Parameters > Feature..

Furthermore, when the dimensions were created, I was unable to position them as intended.  Boxes added to dimensions would not be applied, and updated existing boxed dimensions gave the error message in my original question.  

Is there any possibility that the part/drawing has been corrupted and is there any way of finding out?
