    Default Suppress dimension line

    Is it possible to have a dimension style where the arrowheads display but not the dimension line itself? Or is this not possible since the arrowheads are a part of the dimension line?

    Thanks,

    Jason

    In the ddim/dimstyle dialogue, on the Lines tab, note the four check boxes labelled "Supress......"

    Checking Suppress dimension line also suppresses the arrowhead. I want to see the arrowhead - not the dimension line.

    Thanks,

    I don't know if you can automatically supress it, but if you grab the grip at the base of the dim line and drag it up to the grip at the arrowhead, you won't be able to see it anymore ~shrug~ not perfect, but it'll work

    Jason,

    Are you talking about the dimension line (spanning between the arrows) or the extension line (perpendicular to the arrows)? If you want the actual dimension line gone, you'll need to create a "none" linetype and assign that to your dimension line linetype style.

    Copy the following 2 lines into notepad and save it as none.lin, load it into your drawing and try it out....

    *none, no line
    A, .00, -90

    Reply back if this doesn't help and I'll take another stab!

    Rick

    Oops. My bad. I misread your post. If you are referring to the dim line, you can ignore my solution, I was referring to the extension line - sorry
