Subject: Working with dimension styles

From the Explorer, you can use the Dimension Styles element to cut, copy, and paste dimension styles from one drawing to another.

A dimension style contains the settings that control the appearance of a dimension. Although you cannot control these settings from within the Explorer, you can use the Dimension Styles dialog box to control settings related to the appearance of arrows, lines, text, units, and other formatting characteristics.
