Hi,

 

Probably you have set Dimension Point in Annotate. Just go into Annotate and move Dimension Point.

Thanks,

 

I am not sure if i understand the solution: i should move the dimension line to the correct shutter position?

 

For several windows, i think it should be automatic, like on other bim softwares.  How to make it associative???

It is associative by default, but probably you have set Dimension Point early. If you have set dimension point then dimension will not follow for window size. If you came back Dimension Point to the edge of window then dimension will following for window size.

The problem is not the overall dimension, the problem is the shutter dimension, the inner partition.

As far as I know for schedules no automatic dimensions for shutters, only Nominal size, Unit size, Wallhole size ect.
