When running "OpenSave" on drafts, some dimensions show "Value changed" instead
of showing the dimension value. Why?
Solution This is working as designed and is caused by changes in the corresponding part
or assembly. If the draft is not updated before running OpenSave - so the
dimensions show the values before the changes in part/assembly - the user will
be notified in the log file and by replacing the dimension value with "Value
The user can switch to the "real" dimension value by selecting it RMB ->
unchecking "Not to scale".
Here are a couple of workarounds that might work:
1. Using either Visual Basic, or Visual Studio, which includes Visual Basic
open "OpenSave.vbproj" then modify (Line 1991 and below) and delete the
manipulation of the dimension value.
The line should look like this afterwards:
' objDoc.Sheets.Item(i).Dimensions.Item(j).OverrideString = "**Value Changed**"
2. In OpenSave, uncheck "Update Drawing Views", and do "Update all drawing
views" after opening the draft.
