I have a problem that first occurred in Rhino5, but is still a problem in Rhino6 to my surprise.
Some, but not all, layout views can not be dimensioned. It does not matter what the layer state is. Some layout views (I have quite a few) lose the ability to have dimensions added somewhere along the way. I have made a fiim to show the problem, because it is hard to describe. The layout in the film linked here
was actually working until recently. I had copied the layout view from a working one and reconfigured it, to replace the one labeled “dead”. I thought this was a solution, but apparently not. Now, for no reason that I can seem to repeat, whenever I place a dimension, it just vanishes. The dimensions (ordinate, linear, aligned) that were present at the last save are also vanished.
I am using a worksession, if that matters. The files involved are fairly large.
This problem is costing me are stopping me because I need to be able to dimension these layouts.
