Changing dimension styles


New member
Is there an easier way to change from decimal to fractional dimentions other than clicking each one, going to Edit>properties ? That works, but sure is slow!

You can change your option

create_fraction_dim to yes.

Now every dimension you make will be fractional. But you still have to go back and change the old ones manually.

or you cam make one mapkey. personal I make one, because I need only couple dim. to be in frectional.

then ... click on dimension and just type one or two letters.
