Shared Objects can't view dimensions

famadorianfamadorian Member Posts: 192 ✭✭
I've shared this with someone:

https://cad.onshape.com/documents/a7bd8defc7e4f542b0895756/w/d66f27535992b0818eb904a2/e/ff7a28a01eb7a96bc4da4d83

I told him to right click on the "Profile" and then "edit", cause then he would be able to see the dimensions, but as this is shared, "edit" is not available..
, so how can he view the dimensions?

    Right, I have to share it with editing capability to let the user view the dimensions. This is a bad design decision;) Anyways, thanks.

    Firstly, check that you've shared this with 'edit' rather than 'view' privileges.

    A quick work around is for them to make a copy of the document, but this will destroy the links to your own document, which means they won't see any updates you make.

    As a free user, your documents are public.
    Sharing a public document with another free user can be done either as view-only or edit.
    If they have edit permissions, they may see the sketch parameters just as you describe.
    If they have view-only permissions, they will be able to use the measure tool only.
    If a private document (meaning one created by a pro user), is shared with a free user - regardless of the permissions granted, the free user will always be in view-only mode.

    I hope this helps :)
