Modifying a dimension feature's style

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

All dimension features are associated with a dimension style. When you create a new dimension feature, you must assign it a dimension style. This dimension style must exist in the dimension feature class in which you are creating your new dimension feature. Once a dimension feature is created, it assumes all the properties of its style. You can use the Attributes window to modify some of those properties; however, some properties, such as the symbology of the dimension feature elements, cannot be modified.

You may need to resize the Attributes window to see the properties and the Commit button.

  1. Click the Edit tool Edit Tool on the Editor toolbar and click the feature.
  2. Click the Attributes button Attributes on the Editor toolbar.
  3. Click the Dimension Style drop-down arrow and click the dimension style you want to assign to this feature.
  4. Click Commit to apply the changes to the dimension.
