When I dimension in a MicroStation Drawing I cant snap to points of a DGN reference, as shown below.
I would like this dimension to a point shown in red colour.
Please can somebody advice if there is a setting that I haven't turned on to make this possible?
Thanks in advance,
Make sure that the references you are wanting to dimension are set to cached and not dynamic.
Hope this helps,

where and how to find this setting?

It is in reference manager and it is the "Visible Edges" setting of the reference.
Requiring this setting seems anathema to proper and expected use of Cached/Dynamic. I would expect both to work equally well.
Can someone discuss why only cached works? This may explain some funny results I get trying to dimension 3D objects in DRAWING MODELS. They do not appear to retain ASSOCIATION, but I haven't dug deep, just worked around for now.
FWIW. I am using CE U14.02, but will be reviewing if U15.02 resolves the ITEM TYPE issues I reported, so we can updagrade.

We've had this issue with dynamic/cached views for multiple years now given our deliverables are always cached it wasn't a big deal but I don't disagree with the sentiment that both should work equally well. I figured it was somehow isolated to just our office given I never saw anybody else complain about it. So +1 I guess for fixing this bug. Also, accusnap is awful in big complex models I don't know how people work with it and have confidence in the output. I never turn it on in drawings or models and find it as a "work around" to be an awful ugly band aid on the situation.
