    Default LISP routine to remove Child dimension styles from Dim Styles?

    Hi Everyone!

    I have a problem with my dimensioning. I have my dimstyle set to LSI, however, when I place a dimension, it uses LSI$0. This dimstyle has different options than the LSI dimstyle. Has anyone else seen/had this happen to one of their dimension styles? The best part of this is when I go to the Dim Style Manager, this dimstyle (LSI$0) isn't there. (The only way I can see that it is LSI$0 is when I use the properties command.)

    I would love to get rid of this mystery dimstyle, does anyone have a lisp program to eliminate it. (Purge doesn't work.)

    The other option would be a lisp program to change all dimensions from LSI$0 to LSI.

    Thanks for any help with this!
    Ed

    I beleive the style named "LSI$0" is a decendent of of "LSI".
    AutoCAD assigns the "$#" for the leader when you use the leader command within the dimension style.
    The "#" means something (a variable) but I don't know what (yet).

    I'll check it out.

    Anyway, I'm pretty sure it's any leader associated with the parent dimstyle.
    It belongs there if the dimesion style is there and there are leaders.

    Ok?

    It may be this causing your trouble. . .
    If you bind an xref ( as bind ) and explode it, you will get copies of dimstyles, textstyle, linetypes. . .
    with $0$ in the middle of the name
    If you then try to rename it to the original name you can not,
    and maybe accidentally renamed to "close to"

    a simple workaround is to use _matchprop.

    : ) Happy Computing !

    BTW (Purge doesn't work.) try audit also.

    if your dimstyle as defend setting for type of dimension

    7 LEADER
    2 ANGULAR
    3 DIAMETER
    0 LINEAR
    6 ORDINATE
    4 RADIAL
    then the $# is add to the Style name
    and if you use lisp to change the dimstyle you use that name when you lookup the dimstyle.

    be for autocad 2000 this # and not the name show when you edit the dim style
