In the attached drawing file, dimensions should be a red color (based on the "DIM" layer settings), but are showing up as black for some reason. Had my VAR look at this, even they were stumped.
Michael,, The reason the dimensions are keeping the black color is because that color was assigned. Edit your line color and change to "Default".
I suspect you could open your drawing template and set yours to default then save it so you won't have the issue again. If I'm correct then your colors should conform to the layer color they are assigned to.
Edit:.. I added another couple of screenshots.
Thanks Dennis, that was it!
There's no shortage of ways to change colors in SolidWorks these days, that's for sure.
So interestingly, checking the "Default" box fixes the problem, but every time I go back in there, it's unchecked. Not sure what's up with that...
That,,,, is a good question Michael. I noticed that after setting the "next" line color to default all additional dims come in as they should and if I select one then go to line color it tells me it is "default". A bit confusing for sure.
Try setting the line color to Default with nothing (annotation, line, etc.) selected. That should fix it.
Yep, good-to-go, thanks.
Actually check your layer and layer color - and save your templates and drawing formats with the settings as Per-Standard - especially if you use color in your drawing.
