    Yeah, its deleting them on UNload, so it wont matter how they reload it.

    But i 1000% agree, they should be saving the different versions, in case they need them, for something. But i keep all of the CURRENT ones in one folder.

    I'll check with our BIM manager to see if there is a particular reason we do not keep previous versions of consultant's models.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply and to test out other dimensions!

    Well, you can always do what Architects do:

    You can add all the dimensions (that you know you should not) and then put a big general note that all structural dimensions on these plans are general information / suggested and direct the contractor to absolutely not use these dimensions and please refer to S plans for same. And also, to please give us a call if you find any discrepancies, we'll clarify it right away.

    don't forget to also hand transcribe the full drawing number of said other's work into those notes so that you have to revisit and re-issue the set in perpetuity.

    I wanted to circle back on this thread, as i heard back from the Development and QA team at Autodesk, and they have found the cause of the issue:

    For linear dimension, it handles “Unload a linked file" as a special case of dimension references not visible in the current view, while for radial dimension, it handles the unloading as invalid dimension reference, and thus it requires deletion of the radial dimension when unloading.

    We will see how we might improve the radial dimension to follow a similar behavior pattern.
    (emphasis mine)

    So, they didnt have it documented before, but its a minor difference in how the two types of dimensions handle a Linked File being unloaded. Its on their radar now, which is a plus.

    Thanks to the Adsk team for jumping in and looking in to it, after this thread popped up. Its great to find out whats actually causing small issues like this.

    Thanks for circling back to share your findings. It's great to see how fast the Autodesk Team checked this out for you/us!
