Dimensions not working in CAD Detail

Recommended Posts

I have a plan (attached) which I opened this morning to draw a header detail.  

I cannot get the dimensions to work in the CAD detail.  The tape measure works, but no dimensions.
Plan is attached.

Cad Detail is "16'6" Header

 

How can I get the dimensions to work?  They worked fine until this morning.

 

I am using Chief X 12

 

Thanks,

I think you need to turn on  the locate Cad objects in your dimension defaults.

Ugggggg....I think you are right.  What the heck, I have only been using Chief for about 20 years.  Oh well.

Thanks so much!

Surely something changed. Any idea what? With that said, CA sometimes has a mind of its own and things change for whatever reason...personal experience.:) Not always DOE (dumb operator error).
