I've read all the posts on DIMLFAC. I've somehow have an DIMLFAC in an Dimension Style that is wrong. I change it manually by typing DIMLFAC and by using System Variable Editor. It shows changed but when I use Compare Dimension Styles or actually dim. with it it's not changed. What else would be holding it to this wrong setting which is only wrong vertically and not horizontally?
This is for the Measurement Scale under the Primary Units of your dimstyle. HTH.
This is what the help says for that variable:
Defines measurement scale options as follows:
Scale Factor: Sets a scale factor for linear dimension measurements. AutoCAD multiplies the dimension measurement by the value entered here. For example, if you enter 2, AutoCAD displays a one-inch dimension as two inches. The value does not apply to angular dimensions and is not applied to rounding values or to plus or minus tolerance values. This value is stored in the DIMLFAC system variable.
Apply to Layout Dimensions Only: Applies the linear scale value only to dimensions created in layouts. This sets the length scale factor to reflect the zoom scale factor for objects in a model space viewport. When you select this option, the length scaling value is stored as a negative value in the DIMLFAC system variable.
Manually changing the sysvars associated with dimension styles creates a temporary override for the current style - it doesn't change the style setting itself. Use the style editor dialog to directly alter the style in order for the change to stick.
