Dimension Text

Hello Everyone

What is the best way to change drawing dimensions color. In other words I'm trying to have my text one color & leader / dimension lines different color. Is there a setting in .DTL file that controls this or this is done through system collors option?

Thank you in advance

If you want to change the look of DRWs, then it's system color option, but when your output are DWG format files, you can set dxf_export_mapping_file option and point to the file with color mapping.
