    Default Redfine style

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    hi

    wonder why there is no Redefine option in autocad like in word or any basic word processing program?

    for example, if i making changes locally on a dim style, i want to have the option to update the style with the changes so all object with that style will be updated too?

    Thanks

    S

    Nope. That's called an override. Without that control it would be chaos.
