Understanding dimension styles and variables
Dimensions that you insert are created using the current dimension style. You can create, save, restore, and delete named dimension styles.
To display information about the current dimension style and compare it with other style names, you can use the dimstyle command.
Dimension styles provide a way for you to change various settings that control the appearance of dimensions. You can then save those settings for reuse. If you don't define a dimension style before creating dimensions, the program uses the Standard dimension style, which stores the default dimension variable settings. Each option in the Dimension Settings dialog box relates to a variable that you can set manually. See the online Command Reference.
