NX 12 can't move dimensions when in an assembly while trying to edit a active component's sketch

NX 12 can't move dimensions when in an assembly while trying to edit a active component's sketch

The company I work for upgraded from NX 8.5 to NX 12. At this time our customer defaults and environments needed to be totally redone. I'm hoping there is a setting for this issue. Of which is, when working in assembly, activating only one part and then editing a sketch, dimensions become immovable. You can't drag them they just end up where the second click is made to make the dimension. This is usually in an obscured place and extremely annoying. For the love of all things CAD that is supposed to make the design process smooth and efficient, does anyone know how to fix this?!?!?! I've looked far and wide but can't find anything. PLEASE HELP for my sanity and that of my coworkers. Thanks!

RE: NX 12 can't move dimensions when in an assembly while trying to edit a active component's sketch

Try rotate the view slightly. We had this weird thing happen and noticed that a slight rotation made the dimensions movable.
I do not think this bug is there in our current version, 12.0.2 MP4. ( See https://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=440632 why you should install 12.0.2 MP4 or later.)
What specific version of NX12 is it you are running?

Tomas

I have tested that issue in MP5 and it appears to have been fixed.

Rotating the view works, I don't know why I didn't think of that as it's so obvious that would fix the issue..... I will forward this to my CAD administrator to get the latest version updated. Thanks for the help!

White Paper - Effects of AIA Quick Guide to UL 489 or UL 1077
The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
