I have some drawings with lots of dimensions.  Is there a way to check if any have been over ridden or a global way to set all dimensions to model value?

Hi stevec781,


The iLogic snippet that ScottMoyse refered to was originaly written to be used as part of a larger task, and although it will work to do what you ask, there actually is a built in solution for this as well:


  • Hold the Shift key and then Right-Click
  • Then choose Select All Overidden Dimensions from the menu.

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
