Have any of you noticed the following dimensioning problem in 2014?  I'm on 2014 (x64) Update 1

 

I have a stud wall with exterior brick that I would like to dimension to the center of the core (stud).  My wall is defined correctly with only the stud in the core but I can not dimension to it in 2014.  I can set temporary dimensions to center of core and then make that dimension permanent but I can't reference the center of core otherwise - even for alignment.

 

BTW - I checked this out in 2013 and it worked then, it did not work in our 2012 but it worked in 2011.

 

Why does Autodesk screw things like this up?

I just tried it with a brick exterior and a stud wall core.  At first when I chose center of core I was getting the center of the entire wall, then I tried to switch to face of cores and for some reason it let me pick the center of the stud (core) so I tried switching back to dimensioning to center of core and it was actually working.  I have no clue why that would be.  So I guess my suggestion would be try switching to face of core>add a dimension>then switch back to center of core and see if it works.

It still will not work for me and I can not even align to the core center.  I wonder why it works for you?   I am on windows 7 - 64 - update 1

 

I have filed a support request.

I'm on Windows 7 Professional-update 1 also.  That is weird I'm not having a problem aligning to the cores either, it seems to be working just fine for me.

OK ... That lead me to the problem.  Our file was created in 2012 and our 2012 did not work.  A new file does work so the corruption is in the updated file.

 

Thanks Tea

OK folks, here it is:  You are never too old to learn or make mistakes.

 

I have been in control of our template for several years.  Typically, we never have occasion to use the dimension "entire walls so we typically have our dimension preference (options bar) set to "face of core" because we dimension to face of stud - or core masonry.  That setting allows you to dimension to any reference in a wall including wall face, layers, center of core and center of wall by tabbing through the options.  You will get the same affect by setting this to "center of core".  

 

Here is the rub!  If you set your dimension preference to "Face of wall" or "wall center-line", you can tab select everything EXCEPT core center-line!!!!  Why you can't tab select all references like the other two settings seems to be completely stupid.

 

As many times as I tell users to pay attention to the options bar, you would think I would have seen this .... but as I said, we don't typically change this setting from what I have in our template.

I am having the same problem with my dimension snapping to the wall center line and not the core center line.  I don't know if things have changed from 2014 to 2016 or I am just slow (probalby the later).  Could you point me to where the dimension preferences are in the options (R menu/options?).  I am having a tough time finding it.  All I can find is how to change the preferences for the temporary dimensions (manage tab).

 

Thanks.
