Can anyone tell me how to make defaults for dimensions? Every time I use our pre-set dimensions, I have to modify the leader tip to an arrow. I want to use the tick mark for our dimensions, but the leader end always defaults to tick mark also. Is there any way to default to leader end to an arrow? It drives me nuts to modify the setup every time I change dim scales.
From contributor J:
If you are not already using a template file to start a new drawing, then start a drawing and make all the changes that you want your standard drawing to have, i.e. dimensions, layers, text styles, etc., then save the drawing as a .dwt file. If that is not helpful, I can help you set up dimstyles for specific dimension entities, i.e. separate styles for leaders, radial, diameter, etc.
What happens is that all my dimensions are set to display inches, but when I dim an angle, it kicks into the substyle and shows degrees. This should work for you, too. Whenever you dimension, you'll get your ticks, except when you choose a leader, you'll get an arrowhead, or whatever you set it to be.
