Create a dimension style on the fly

Dimension styles are a great way to organize and manage your dimensions. Usually, you use the DIMSTYLE command (Dimension>Dimension Style or Annotate tab> Dimensions> Dimension Style).

But you can quickly create a new dimension style from an existing dimension with the Properties palette. Select a dimension and display the Properties palette.

All the properties of the dimension are listed there. Make any changes you want.

After you’re done, right-click in the drawing area and choose Dim Style>Save as New Style from the shortcut menu.

The New Dimension Style dialog box opens so that you can give the dimension style a name. Then click OK.
