    Can't see constrains in Family editor.

    Experts this is OOTB detail item family, i can't see any dimension constrain in this file but it has constraints and they flex with geometry, so how these constraints are put and how they are working?

    If I remember correctly, OOTB detail components have the dimensions turned off.

    Go to vg: annotations and turn them back on...

    They also have a lot of dimensions as well as reference planes in sketch mode. Sometimes you have to edit the extrusion, filled region etc to see the constraints.

    See the checkbox near the top of that window? That should be turned on. That is why you can't see them
