This may be a really bad question. But I want to change the default color of the dimension text from yellow to any other color. I dont know how to do this. I have when to dimension style and all that and clicked on the text tab and changed the color and the when I click set current it still does not update on the drawing. I was wondering if anybody can offer help.
What dimension style is using for existing dimensions in the drawing? Is it using the current dimension style you set in Dimension Style Manager?
If you want existing dimensions to update the current dimension style, you can use "-DIMSTYLE" and use Apply option and then select the dimensions to update.
To change dimension text from yellow (the most horrible selection of a color because you can barely read it when printed), type "DDIM" on your command line. This will bring up Dimension Style Manager. Select the "Modify" button, which will bring up an Overide Current Style Dialog box. Select "Text" tab, from here you can pick whatever colors you want.
As for the color in dimension text, have you tried to use LightBackground template, like am_iso_lbg.dwt, acadiso_lbg.dwt? In those templates, the default color of dimension text is 140 so you should be able to see it in layout.
