    This is intriguing me!

    How do I insert automatically, sketch dimensions (not feature dimensions)
    into drawing views without repeating all dimensions as reference dimension
    in part document?
    The reason I need them is that in drawing mode there is almost no way to
    insert dimensions from silhouette edges besides duplicating edges with
    sketch entities - this looks to me too cumbersome. On the other hand, I
    don't like the option of Split line feature>Intersection plane, because it
    messes all my assembly and other in-context parts + introduces many
    unnecessary faces to the model.

    Surely I'm doing something in the wrong way or I don't know what else....

    Whoever will enlighten me will be blessed :)

    I take back all my words!
    Forget that I asked it - I found it!
    On the insert model view of course!

    Next time I'll try my best to search more patiently through the
    documentation, before posting here (now I will bang my head against the
    screen.... the hell with it, it is an LCD one, first I need to search a CRT
    one or I will satisfy my self destructive frustration on the wall :) )
