Default dimension colors (when you haven't created layers) are:
-black for dimensions which have been imported from the model (sketches and features).
-Grey for reference dimensions (basically any you add manually)
-Sort of a Gold/Green for dangling dimensions (if you made a change to the model that the dimension couldn't follow - ex. if you change a counterbore hole to a tapped hole the dimension will not know what knew face intersection to attach to). You can reattach dangling dimensions, but often it is easier to just delete them and reinsert them.
If you want to change the dimension colors you can adjust the color properties in Tools/Options
Turn on the Layers toolbar and setup a layer for dimensions to go on. I have setup all of the drawing templates to have a black dimension layer that is active, so that all dimensions are black from the start.
Hope this helps
Thanks Scott, that clears some of my problems up! But why would the line color tool not let me over ride the grey dims I add?
Sorry for the delay - I was putting out some fires of my own...
The only thing I can figure is:
on the line format toolbar the last icon is used toggle the line color display mode between what is assigned with the layers (or default settings) and what is assigned with the line format tools.
Thanks Scott! Used options and set them up. Was what I needed.
