Ive dimensioned walls in a view that is showing the Entire Model.
I changed the walls composite to add a new skin material (cladding and air gap) and assign these as a Finish and change the view to display Without Finishes or Core Only the dimensions disappear.
is there a way to change the walls composite to have a this cladding finish without the dimensions disappearing so that this new skin dosnt display in this view?
No sadly. Those dimensions are gone. It is a painful lesson I learnt about a decade ago. I only have full display in plan view now and all other views so I don't make that mistake again.
For clarity, the dimensions aren't really gone when you change the Partial Structure Display.
It is just each of the 4 display options have their own dimensions.
Placing a dimension in one display option will not show in any of the others - they all have to be dimensioned separately.
But the dimensions will still be there when you switch between them.
Thanks for putting the right answer Barry! My sense of humour sometimes gets the best of me.
