RE: AutoCAD Dimstyle (READ ONLY) -Reply

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The drawing I have in hand was generated via topographic survey
software. At the AutoCAD Command line when I type DIMSTYLE and then
type ST for status I find that DIMSTYLE is set as Standard_96_3 which is
READ ONLY.

I don't see an XREF notation at any point during the drawing upload
process. 

The net effect is that I cannot change any of the DIMVARS.

Is it "Read Only" because it belongs to a file you have X-Ref'd? If so, you
need to change the dimstyle in the X'Ref'd drawing.

Is there any way to change a Read Only Dimstyle within AutoCAD R13?
