Some issues with drawings/dimensions

Postby Jeremy Schiffer » Thu, May 02 2019, 10:35AM

I've got a little list here of issues that I've isolated concerning auto-dimensioning, scaled print, and cross-section views:

1- Auto dimensions:
For the sake of material thickness variations, we have hardware hole patterns that protrude beyond the bounds of the cabinet (in this case, 1/8")

You can see them in this picture, as well as the automatic dimension from the Custom Layout, which is correct at 34.5"

If I create a Scaled Drawing from this view, it is also correct.

If I take this view to the Line Drawing Editor and auto-dimension it, the dimensions include the protruding hardware holes (definitely don't want that):

2- Cross Section View
If I create a cross-section view of the cabinet, and then a Scaled Print, the scaled print does not show the cross section, rather it seems to just show an end-view of the cabinet:

3- Print scale not printing
When printing a scaled print, the print scale shows on the screen, but does not show on the printout. (I mentioned this during the beta phase for this feature)

Thanks for letting us know, I'll pass along the issues to the software engineers.
