This app highlights dimensions in a drawing for which the user has customized or edited the dimension text and helps to ensure the quality of the drawings. Once loaded, the DIMPATROL command can be used to turn on (and off) the highlighting of potentially problematic dimensions: dimensions whose text has been overridden and therefore may not match the actual dimension.

About

  • This app highlights dimensions in a drawing for which the user has customized or edited the dimension text and helps to ensure the quality of the drawings.
  • Once loaded, the DIMPATROL command can be used to turn on (and off) the highlighting of potentially problematic dimensions: dimensions whose text has been overridden and therefore may not match the actual dimension.
  • To change the color used to highlight the dimension, use the DIMPATROLCOLOR command or for command line usage -DIMPATROLCOLOR. To change the transparency used, use the DIMPATROLTRANSPARENCY command.
  • In trial mode there is a limited number of highlights per AutoCAD session.
  • Works with Associative dimensions and Nonassociative dimensions where the text has been edited with for example DDEDIT or DIMEDIT or using Text override in Properties. Exploded dimensions are not supported.
  • Works with all kind of dimension objects like linear dimension (horizontal and vertical rotated dimension), aligned linear dimension, angular dimension (3 point angular dimension), arc length dimension, radius dimension (radial dimension), diameter dimension (diametric dimension),  jogged dimension and ordinate dimension.
