Changing Dimension Styles in a Drawing?


New member
I Have a drawing with a bunch of dimensions in a certain style, I want to change all of them to a different style. Is there a quick way to do this without having to select each dimension and change the style?
Thanks in advance.
Hold down the CNTRL key to multi select many dimensions and then select the style to change them all at once. If they are grouped together, you can use a window box or a crossing window to multi select also.
What version of Inventor are you using? In IV11 you can RMB the dimension whose properties you want to duplicate and select copy properties. Then you just LMB all the dimensions you want to change and they will update.
