Working with the progeCAD Explorer

Working with dimension styles

From the progeCAD Explorer, you can use the Dimension Styles element to cut, copy, and paste dimension styles from one drawing to another.

NOTE You can select the dimension style and use the Microsoft Windows shortcut keys (Ctrl+A to select all, Ctrl+X to cut, Ctrl+C to copy, Ctrl+V to paste) to accomplish the same results. You can use these shortcut keys with all other progeCAD Explorer elements as well.

A dimension style contains the settings that control the appearance of a dimension. Although you cannot control these settings from within the progeCAD Explorer, you can use the Dimension Settings dialog box to control settings related to the appearance of arrows, lines, text, units, and other formatting characteristics.
