orenged dimension in drawing


This is happened because you apply dimensions in a drawing using the command Insert > Dimension > New Reference.

If the feature or edge you used to apply the above dimension is deleted or suppressed the the dimension becames orange (that is the way proe shows you that this dimensions has lost its reference)

I suggest you not to apply dimensions with this way (if it possible).

Try to use the Show/Erase dialog.

With this way if a reference of a dimension been suppressed or deleted then the system deletes also its dimension
