Dimension macro needed!

Dimension macro

I'm looking for a macro to change the default text on a dimension to a different text.

My idea:

On a drawing

Hit "smart Dimension" and place dimension on the side of part

Hit the Marco

The Marco would charge the text from the default to "Arial Black"

End

Thanks for any help!!!!

Without macro, here are 2 options.

Tools > Options > Document Properties tab > Detailing > Annotation Font > Dimension to globally change font.

Create a dimension favorite.

Wouldn't dimension favorites work for that?

If you only want certain dims on the drawing to be in that font, wouldn't dimension favorites work for that? I think that's what they're for.

I agree. No need for a macro. Doing what Flores suggested is just as quick as running a macro.

you could also just use teh Annotations font toolbar that comes up when you select a dimension.
