Tolerances does not show in drawing


I have a problem when I'm working with imported drawings like DWG and DXF. I import a drawing which I then use to take measures from while I model the part in 3D.

When I model the part I get funny dimensions in my sketches. They are usually with to many decimals (trailing zeroes) and it almost looks like dual dimensioning. Sometimes the sketching dimensions have tolerances.

The next step is to create a new drawing which is associated to the model. When I dimension my part and try to add tolerances to the dimensions, the tolerance does not show. Checknig the dimensions properties it say the tolerances are on. But they don't show.

The above doesn't happen when I create my own parts with no imported drawing in the background.

Does anyone know what causes this fenomena and how do I get rid of it.

Using Wildfire, recent build.

As I said, this advice about would probably work, if it were not for the unconventional use of drawings 'in the background'. What this brings to the picture is obviously more than meets the eye. Wish I could be more help, but all bets are off.
