Dimension Erase All ( Drawing Editor )

Tool summary :

  • Automatically deletes all dimensions that are on shown layers in your current drawing.
  • Shown layers are visible layers (layers marked " Show "). Since Dimension Erase All only works on visible layers, you can -- prior to activating this tool -- turn off particular layers to exclude dimensions that are on those layers from being deleted.
  • The selection of objects that is made prior to using Dimension Erase All does not affect the operation of the tool, but the tool does affect the selection. All selected items are automatically deselected as a result of Dimension Erase All .
  • To invoke Dimension Erase All and delete all dimensions that are on shown layers:

    Method 1 : Click the Dimension Erase All icon. The icon can be taken from the group named ' Objects -- 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 > Dimensions > Erase All .

    Method 3, 4 or 5 : Dimension Erase 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 .
