    Question Dimensions are exploding once created.

    I am working in a drawing that was originally created by someone else and I am trying to dimension the drawing. When I place a dimension it shows up as if I had exploded it after creating it. Other drawings I have open at the same time do not do this so I think there is a variable local to the drawing that is causing this but I don't know what it is. I am using AutoCAD 2010.

    Default Re: Dimensions are exploding once created.

    From the Help


    DIMASSOC

    Type: Integer
    Saved in: Drawing
    Initial value: 2

    Controls the associativity of dimension objects and whether dimensions are exploded.

    0
    Creates exploded dimensions. There is no association between the various elements of the dimension. The lines, arcs, arrowheads, and text of a dimension are drawn as separate objects.

    1
    Creates non-associative dimension objects. The elements of the dimension are formed into a single object. If one of the definition points of the dimension moves, the dimension is updated.

    2
    Creates associative dimension objects. The elements of the dimension are formed into a single object, and one or more definition points of the dimension are coupled with association points on geometric objects. If the association point on the geometric object moves, the dimension location, orientation, and value are updated.


    DIMASSOC is not stored in a dimension style.

    Drawings saved in a format previous to AutoCAD 2002 retain the setting of the DIMASSOC system variable. When the drawing is reopened in AutoCAD 2002 or later, the dimension associativity setting is restored. If a legacy drawing is opened in AutoCAD 2002, the DIMASSOC system variable takes on the value of the legacy drawing's DIMASO system variable.
