Arc Dimension Edit All ( Drawing Editor )

Tool summary :

  • Automatically opens a window for multi-editing all arc dimensions that are on shown layers in your current drawing.
  • Shown layers are visible layers (layers marked " Show "). Since Arc Dimension Edit All works only on visible layers, you can -- prior to activating this tool -- turn off particular layers to exclude arc dimensions that are on those layers from being edited.
  • Arc Dimension Edit All can help you to ensure that arc dimensions are drawn consistently. When the Edit Arc Dimension window opens, you can easily identify mixed entries because they are grayed out . If you then, for example, change the " Font ," all arc dimensions will be assigned that same font.
  • The selection of objects that is made prior to using Arc Dimension Edit All does not affect the operation of the tool, nor does the tool affect the selection. For example, if you have clouds selected before you activate the tool, the clouds remain selected after Arc Dimension Edit All is done.
  • To invoke Arc Dimension Edit All and edit all arc dimensions that are on shown layers:

    Method 1 : Click the Arc Dimension Edit All icon. The icon can be taken from the group named ' Objects -- Arc Dimensions ' and placed on a toolbar (classic) or the ribbon (lightning).

    Method 2 : If " Drawing Editor layout style " is ' Classic ', you can use the menu system to choose Objects > Arc Dimensions > Edit All .

    Method 3, 4 or 5 : Arc Dimension Edit All can also be invoked using a keyboard shortcut , the context menu , or a mode . For the ' Lightning ' layout style, configuration of the interface is done using Customize Interface .
