Unable to select geometry in drawing layout.
I am running KC2012 V11.3.1 32bit on a new 64 bit PC. So far all is working OK, except...

When I place fasteners in my assemly and then create a drawing layout I am unable to select end, mid, cntr points etc. to dimension the drawing.
If I remove the fasteners then I am able to select the points in the drawing.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

RE:Unable to select geometry in drawing layout.
Hi All,

After some more digging I found that if you set the layout instance setting to Hidden Line Rendering instead of Precise Hidden Line Rendering the geometry becomes selectable.

Regards,

Alan

RE:Unable to select geometry in drawing layout.

This is not directly related to your issue but I often find similar anomalies when using fasteners in my layout instances as well. I often have to insert fasteners into layouts as solids instead of fasteners. I do this one of two ways; On the Tools>Fastener window click the Fast Setup tab and un-check "Create as Fastener object" before placing the fastener or by bursting (Edit>Entities>Burst) the fastener after placing. Not sure if this will help in your case but anything is possible.
