I used the ordinate position to mark the X,Y center of a hole in my part. Then copied the ordinates dimensions to the other 8 holes. The value of the Ordinate positions do not appear to update while the control points correctly identify the new position. Am I missing something?
Copying or moving Ordinate dimensions also moves the base point
To copy them without moving the basepoint, turn on points and copy the points on the dimension, not including the base point.
I guess you could also do it like you did and then move the basepoints back to where you want them.
