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