Save time on drafting by copying your dimension styles

You have created a draft and customized a text style or a specific dimensioning. You do not want to repeat these actions again.

The Replace Model command allows you to copy only the dimension styles in an existing draft document.

To do this, drag the draft document containing the dimension styles you want to copy into the document to be modified. The styles are then automatically copied to the destination document.

Now you can apply this new style to the existing dimensions:

  • by bringing up the contextual menu on a dimension if you want to make a local change;
  • by bringing up the contextual menu from the Entities tree if you want to modify all the draft dimensions.
