Thanks for the reply.
That is precisely what I meant with the phrase "workaround". It just feels wrong doing this.
Using hotlinks does help with keeping floor-plans up to date, but having separate file means not using same layout file structure, having to duplicate the rest of visuals on layouts, saving two files etc. I know this is a standard procedure with bigger projects - to have them joined as modules in one file, but that does not excuse the missing functionality of coordinate dimension tool. If nothing else, you have to have two separate BimX files on site, even for small housing projects
I am not saying this is a deal breaker, I am just trying to say it is easily avoidable step. Already solved in UK&Ireland apparently
I just can't find a good reasoning for this, am I the only one?
