Working with dimension styles


From CADdirect 2022 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 CADdirect 2022 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.


Creating and naming dimension styles

By using the Dimension Styles element in combination with the Dimension Styles dialog box, you can create new dimension styles, modify them, and copy them into a different drawing.



Copying dimension styles

You can copy and paste dimension styles between drawings. In addition to the steps below, you can also select a dimension style and use the Windows shortcut keys (Ctrl+A to select all, Ctrl+X to cut, Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+V to paste) to copy it in CADdirect 2022 Explorer. You can use these shortcut keys with all other CADdirect 2022 Explorer elements as well.


Each drawing contains a dimension style named Standard.

You cannot delete this dimension style, but you can rename it from within the CADdirect 2022 Explorer or modify its properties in the Dimension Styles

dialog box.
