While in catia 2d drafting workbench, i am not getting icon ,that if clicked ,displays a window 'Dimension generation filters'. how to display that toolbar or toolbar icon?and because of this i am unable to generate dimensions automatically.
I turned the menu on by checking Visualization ToolBar, but even if i click any of its icons, i am unable to generate the dimensions filters automaticallly and the 'Dimension generation filters' window is not showing still.
None of the commands in the Visualization toolbar create any geometry. These commands change how things are displayed to help you understand how your drawing was created.
The Filter Generated Elements is for geometry only (not dimensions). Lines and curves that were added to the drawing manually are the normal color & brightness, while lines and curves that were generated (within each view) are shown as a dull gray color. If you have to modify a drawing, this helps you understand if you have to change drawing geometry or part geometry.
I'm not familiar with the "Dimension Generated Filters" you are asking about. Where did you learn about this command? The Generated Dimensions Analysis tool does include a Dimension Analysis in 2D option that hightlights different types of dimensions. The Analysis Display Mode option (in the Visualization toolbar) colors dimensions based on the dimension type.
