We still use multiple dim styles for dimensioning (slowly moving over to annotative text). I'm running into an issue where I save a template file with the multiple dim styles we use. When I open the template, for some reason the first dim style, in this case "DIM 1", automatically has an overriden version when I open the dimension style manager. Any ideas why this is happening? I've attached an image showing what's happening.
Got it. We are using a fastener lisp routine for steel shapes. However, the overriding dim style is only happening in certain files. The lisp routine is loaded with every file. See attached image.
Loaded is one thing, until you actually use a command in that lisp, that's when it change your dimstyle and not restoring it.
Why not try to stop Al steel program at start up and see if your dimstyle will change.
If you cannot find the source of this problem, use a band-aid.
In your S:TARTUP, enter this at the very end:
(setvar 'CMDECHO 0)
(command ".dim" "Restore" (getvar 'DIMSTYLE) "Exit")
(setvar 'CMDECHO 1)
