I am adding Gtol to my drawing and I'm receiving this message:

status: incomplete, please set placement in "Model Ref"

not sure what they are asking me to do. But I'm unable to place Gtol on my drawing... Can someone help...



On the first tab of the GTOL dialog box you have two selections, reference and placement. Depending on what you are applying the GTOL to (model or drawing), Pro/E will restrict what you can attach (placement) the GTOL to in the drawing. It wants you to pick an existing dimension or use a leader or place a free note.
