Hi,

 

>> the dimension style does not stay in the drop down list after drawing save

For me (AutoCAD 2013 German) it works like I'm used to.

 

My steps:

  • start a new drawing
  • within the ribbon I changed the default dimstyle to another one
  • I saved the drawing
  • I closed the drawing
  • I opened the drawing

The dimension style stays at the style I set in step 2

To be more precise:

 

  1. Start AutoCAD 2013 (french version used)
  2. Create new DWG from metric template
  3. Change current dim style from the dropdown
  4. draw a dimension, 
  5. click on the Save icon
  6. The current style diseapears from the dropdown, ilt's blank (but the current style remains current)

 

Bug seen by two different users on the french version.

Hi,

Yes, I  see the same for the English.

 

The Dimension does not need to be drawn.

Same issue here (french release).

It only happens when I have more than 4 dimension styles in the current drawing. With 1-4 styles, the drop down list remains correct when saving.

Hi,

Tried it with 5 dimstyles, can't reproduce it (with German release).

Seems to happen when Standard is not the current style?
