Can someone remind me how to make details lines more "sticky" with reference planes in detail families? Sometimes the lines flex with the reference planes without any deliberate locking or other parameters and other times they just don't. What's the order of operations where it "just works?" Thanks.

It depends what work plane you draw it on. If you draw the line in plan and then in elevation you move that work plane up or down the line will move with it. If you draw the line in elevation it will be on the left/right or front/back workplane and then if you move those refernce planes in plan the line will move aswell.

There are a couple of things that affect this. 

 

First is order of creation.  Elements will associate with other elements that already exist.  If you add a reference plane after drawing a detail line there is no association of the line to the plane....even if one is on top of the other.  So always think ahead and add control planes first. 

 

Next is proximity.  The rules of proximity are still vague to me but obviously any association made will be to the closest plane that exists when the element is added and that seems to hold true even if another unassociated plane is moved into range afterwards.

Perfect. Thanks for that. Working throught those suggestions I noticed also that this depends on parameterizing the reference planes and then selecting linework and simply moving them to snap in contact with these planes. Then it just works beautifully! Thanks again!
