Anybody know how to make the non-driven dimensions in a sketch a different color thant the fully defined lines. I've looked but haven't been able to find a way to do it. I can make driven dimensions a different color but that's it. Thanks.
Pete, now I understand what you're asking to do. The sketch defining dimensions color are actually controlled by "sketch, fully defined" under the system color options. The problem with changing that is it will not only change your driving dimensions but your sketch entities as well. There is no way to split them apart.
Go to Tools > Options > Colors. Under "Color scheme settings", you can set colors for "Sketch, Fully Defined", "Sketch, Under Defined", etc.
Yes, but that changes the color of the lines and the dimensions. If I set "Sketch, Fully Defined" to Yellow, both dimensions and lines are yellow. Complex sketches turn into a jumbled yellow mess. I want the Non-driven dimensions to be a different color than the fully defined lines.
That setting changes the dimensions on drawings, not sketches.
that setting is not for drawings but for your part/assembly sketches
oh right but I said non-driven, in a sketch.
they are both controlled right there.
The one that says "Dimensions, Imported (Driving) only changes the dimensions on a drawing not a sketch. I have all those dimensions set to a color other than yellow and my Driving dimensions, marked for Drawing are all yellow.
see the setting and the sketch to the right.
And that is the problem. It drives me nuts. After 20 years of staring at a computer all day my eyes need all the help they can get.
I'm right there with you....
