Overriding Dimension Styles


You can define dimension style overrides for individual dimensions, or for the current dimension style. For individual dimensions, you may want to create overrides to suppress a dimension’s extension lines or modify text and arrowhead placement so that they do not overlap drawing geometry without creating a different dimension style.
You can also set up overrides to the current dimension style. All dimensions you create in the style include the overrides until you delete the overrides, save the overrides to a new style, or set another style current.

To create dimension style overrides

  1. From the Dimension menu, choose Style.
  2. In the Dimension Style Manager, choose Override.
  3. In the Override Current Style dialog box, enter the style overrides, and then choose OK.
  4. AutoCAD displays style overrides below the dimension style name. After you create dimension style overrides, you can continue to modify dimension styles, compare them with other dimension styles, or delete or rename the overrides.
