DIM Styles


New member
I have created a drawing sheet with the border,title block, and dimension styles, (I modified the default(ANSI) style), that I prefer. I then changed the name and saved it in the templates folder. In the 'new' dialog box, I now have my drawing template to choose. When I start it, the border and title block are right but the dimension style is back to the original. If I open the idw file from the template folder, everything is right.
Can someone tell me if I am doing something wrong?
Modify your project settings (File=>Projects...) so the style library is "Use Styles Library" is set to "Yes". Then You need to save the styles you changed in your template file to the styles
library. There is a conflict between the styles library dimension style and the template dimension style. When this occurs, the styles library takes precedence.
