AutoCAD 2010 :: Radius / Diameter Dimension Style

Jul 5, 2012

When I dimension an arc to find the radius, the dimesnions appears as a line going from teh center of the arc to the edge of the arc with the dimension in the middle. I don't want this. I want a leader pointing to the R text and that's it.

I've attached a photo of both scenarios- one dimension is the style I don't want, and one is basically the style I want (I'd like it to be more of an elbowed leader line), but it only appears when I use AutoCAD's ISO25 dimension style.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Select All Lines And Changing Dimension Style

Aug 9, 2012

I just got a new job with AutoCAD 2011. In the previous version (was using 2008 beore), I could select all lines, dimensions hatches, and then change the dimension style. But with this new version, as soon as I select anything that is not a dimension, like a hatch pattern or a regular line, I can't change the dimension style anymore. Is there anyway to change this back to how it was?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Find Dimension Style Manager In 2011?

Mar 8, 2011

I'm trying to find dimension style manager in Autocad 2011. The one where I can set text size, arrow size, style etc.

I used to be able to find it on the dimensions toolbar but now it's gone. I mostly use Inventor so I rarey go back to Autocad.

even finding how to change precision of the dimension was a pain - it used to be double click and change it in the property window. After a few minutes of trying things I managed to find it under right lick menu.

anyway - looking for dimension style manager so that I can create a new style and use it.

AutoCad 2D :: Dimension Style Changes Without Dimension Style Being Changed?

May 25, 2011

I'm working on a drawing that was converted into cad and it seems like every dimension has its own style. When I copy use the move comand or try to change the dimension the text changes from being above the dimension line to centered and the text gets closer together horizontally. When I compare a copied dimension to the original it has all the same properties including the text pos vert still being above text. The actual dimension style hasn't changed at all but what is showing up on screen is different.

Here a image showing three dimensions with the same properties, the top 2'-10" is what it should look like, the bottom is what it looks like when I copied it and the 1'-2" is when I make a new dimension.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Changing Dimension Style Reverts To Different Style

May 7, 2012

I am working with a template, that doesn't allow me to change the dimension style. In the project the Use Style Library is set to Read/Write. I have created my dimension style, at this point just a copy of the ANSI standard with a text size difference. I went to my template and set that syle as my default, and saved it. Now the fact that it doesn't automatically update the drawing I had alreadycreated is a nuisance, however if I creat a new drawing, the style has reverted to a different standard, that is not even the ANSI default. If I right click a dimension and change the dimstyle to what I saved it does update, but if I try to change the style again it defaults to a random dimstyle, AND changes the style even if I hit cancel. So... the question is how to make the changes stick?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Make Dimension Get Bigger And Smaller As Scale Drawing?

Mar 20, 2012

How to make the dimension get bigger and smaller as we “scale” the drawing?

For example, the drawing in the screenshot below is scaled by 0.5 but that didn’t affect the “size” of the dimension (height of the text, extension lines, …).

Is there a way to get the dimension line affected as we scale the drawing such that the “dimension text” and the “extension line” are increased/ decreased with the scale factor?

Software: AutoCAD 2014, AutoCAD C3D, AutoCAD M3D, Revit
Windows 7 (Ultimate 64 bits),
Firefox 20.0,

AutoCAD 2010 :: Can't Remove Legend Font Style Or Table Style?

Nov 5, 2009

There is a font and table style called "Legend" that is automatically generating and can not be purged.

I have looked through all the start up files, all the lisp files and can't find anything that would be creating them!

They appear in any file I open, new or old and even if I open a template file.

I have attached a file that should be empty but you will (or should) see both a font and table style called "Legend".

(FYI I am running AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 as AutoCAD 2010)

AutoCad :: Dimension Style Overrides?

Sep 16, 2005

Each time I open a drawing, on my arrow dimension I get a style override which is always scaled at 96. Even if I delete the style override, when I close the drawing and open it again, it's back. It's always on the "arrow" dimension, never any other dimensions. I don't know why it's been doing this, it just started one day out of nowhere. Is there a way I can get rid of it? I'm using AutoCAD 2005.

AutoCad 2D :: Dimension Style Errors

Aug 14, 2013

I am trying to solve a problem which all 3 of us in the Drawing office are battling with. The standard dimstyle we use is called "MP2013" , we are finding that somehow ACAD is adding something resembling a "$" sign at the end of the dimstyle and the properties are out of whack. We cant work out what brings it on but its been happening for a week or 2 now.

AutoCad :: Get A Dimension Style Override Appear When Using DAL Shortcut

Jun 28, 2013

why every time I use the DAL shortcut, I get a dimension style override appear? Yet it doesn't do it when i use DIMALI or the DIMALIGNED button?

I've searched extensively for a solution to this yet I can't find a solution that works. The >Drawing Setup>Scale tab doesn't seem to exist in this version, and I've tried setting all the CreateDimOverride values in the registry to 0, but even that isn't working.

AutoCad 2D :: Dimension Style - Decimal Inches

Oct 31, 2012

Is there any way when I am dimensioning something to make it read feet and decimals of a foot for instance.

Instead of it reading 5’-6 9/16” it would read 5.546875’?

I tried a few different things on the dimension style and I can get it to read out in decimal inches (it would be 66.5625” with the example givin) but not feet.

The reason I need it is for a program that we run where we must enter the measurement in decimal feet
