I searched the forum on the subject and no luck.
My situation is as follow...
In Project Preferrence - Dimensioning Styles; in each category I created a style and saved (VEi...).
I lighted the style I created and hit OK (dimensioning Style dialog box), I hit SAVE (Project preferences dialog box) and then OK, but when I use the Automatic Drawing command and generate the drawing, it seems to be defaulted back the STANDARD Style. This is the case for all the Categories.
Please see attachment.
What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to select the style you created?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try going to the "Templates" tab in the object inspector. Then click on each view (in my case it's the cut view from Assembly 1:5), then at the bottom you should see Section Style and Detail Style. Double click on the style name (in my case "Assembly - standard), then click on the style you want it changed to.
To my knowledge, you'll have to click on each view individually in order to change the style. But perhaps someone else knows a quicker way to change them.
I attached a picture which I hope helps.
Thank-you for the quick response and accompanying image; this helps a lot.
Unfortunately, this does not work for me. I seleected my style and went to execute the Automaic Drawings command and iit still giving me the defaulted style.
I noticed when I'm in the Object Inspector - template tab; when I changed the Dimension Style at the bottom for one template (ex Assembly 1:5), go to the next template (ex Assembly 1:10). But when I look back or click on Assembly 1:5 template, the Dimension Style reverted back to Standard.
I encounter the same problem when changing the scale of each view. In order for it to permanently change (at least for me) I have to hit the enter key, otherwise it changes back just like you described.
Yep, this enter thing works...
I guess its one of those...
ASD: You want to change style?
