USA Library Update Bug? - Mtl Stud Dimensions Missing

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello Everyone,

I haven't been drawing new details in a while and hadn't noticed that the AC19 and AC20 Mtl Stud Objects no longer displays the dimensions on the Info box thus not being able to select the right one without having to place all of them since the name doesn't indicate the size.

In AC18 this was displayed and allowed to find the right one rapidly.
How can I make the dimensions come back?

The only place where it shows the size is in the display window which is really small. This is the case for almost all standard DTL objects where the dimension had been locked.

This is the stupidest US library update to hide the dimensions. Gray them out if they are not editable.

Hi All,
US users have asked for locking/hiding this information in the settings for the elements in the Detailer Library Folder. (since changing this information has no effect on the elements and could be deemed confusing accessing it in the settings window) That’s why our Design Team decided to hide this information and display it instead on the Preview Pictures. Let me know if any questions remain, best, k

Well I would be one that want it back. The objects aren't named in a way to find the right size easily.
