Missing profile hotspots


Just came to dimension up a couple of beams using complex profiles in v24 and noticed that the segmented version with a matching end cap & hotspots only displays the base line points, unlike the straight beam which retains all the original hotspots. Anyone else seeing this?

I get the same in section view as well. Bit of a pain for associative dimensioning...

Yes, you only see the reference line hotspot - unless you go into EDIT mode.

But of course, then you can't add dimensions.


Any dimensions you do add though, should be associative.

I just tried on a beam with modifiers and my dimension stretched as well as I changed the beam.

Thanks Barry, I realised after I posted that the points were there but not visible. The work I am doing just now makes me check for hotspot positions; when they don't display the assumption is there is no associative dimension connection available.
