Driven and Driving Dimension Colors

Question asked by Jeff Daverio on Mar 11, 2016

For some reason (in both new drawings and already existing drawings), all of my dimensions in a drawing are black, irregardless of if they are driven or driving (which is a bit frustrating).  Now, when I first noticed this, I went into Options>System Options>Colors and checked what the set colors were (Black and Grey, the defaults).  I have since changed them to green and pink to see if that would do anything (it didn't).  I have tried rebuilding the drawing/part, closing and restarting Solidworks 16.

 

While this doesn't really effect my work, it would be nice to know what dimensions I can change without having to go into the part, and double clicking all of the dimensions is annoying.

 

Any ideas?

 

(Attached is a screenshot of the driving colors option over a part that I imported dimensions into, so in theory, they should all be green (if I double click them, I can edit them))
