Hey guys,

 

Does anyone have any idea why everytime I use the DAL shortcut, I get a dimension style override appear? Yet it doesn't do it when i use DIMALI or the DIMALIGNED button?

 

I've searched extensively for a solution to this yet I can't find a solution that works. The >Drawing Setup>Scale tab doesn't seem to exist in this version, and I've tried setting all the CreateDimOverride values in the registry to 0, but even that isn't working.

 

Does anyone have any idea how to control this?

 

Thanks....

Welcome to CADTutor. :)

I just checked on 2013 Autocad Vanilla, and DAL at the command line gets me to

the DIMALIGNED command, no problem.

 

You could quite easily go into your .PGP file and add (at the very bottom of the list, where one is meant to save customizations)

DAL as the shortcut for DIMALIGNED.

If you have ALIASEDIT in 2010, you could do it there even more easily.

Hey, thanks for the reply :)

 

The weird thing is, in the pgp file, the command looks as it should (DAL, *DIMALIGNED), but when I type DAL into the command line, it comes up as DAl, and then proceeds to do this;

 

DAl

_.LAYER

Current layer: "2D_DIM"

Enter an option

[?/Make/Set/New/Rename/ON/OFF/Color/Ltype/LWeight/TRansparency/MATerial/Plot/Fre

eze/Thaw/LOck/Unlock/stAte/Description/rEconcile]: _S

Enter layer name to make current or

[?/Make/Set/New/Rename/ON/OFF/Color/Ltype/LWeight/TRansparency/MATerial/Plot/Fre

eze/Thaw/LOck/Unlock/stAte/Description/rEconcile]:

Command: _.-layer

Current layer: "2D_DIM"

Enter an option

[?/Make/Set/New/Rename/ON/OFF/Color/Ltype/LWeight/TRansparency/MATerial/Plot/Fre

eze/Thaw/LOck/Unlock/stAte/Description/rEconcile]: _S

Enter layer name to make current or

[?/Make/Set/New/Rename/ON/OFF/Color/Ltype/LWeight/TRansparency/MATerial/Plot/Fre

eze/Thaw/LOck/Unlock/stAte/Description/rEconcile]:

Command: DIM1

Dim: _RESTORE

Enter a dimension style name, [?] or

Unknown dimension style.

Current dimension style: Model Space Annotative: No

Current dimension overrides:

DIMTXSTY B_FULL

Command: DIM1

Dim: _STYLE New text style : B_full

Command: ._DIMALIGNED

Specify first extension line origin or

Specify first extension line origin or

 

All on its own. Yet there's no other DAl command in the pgp file. Is there something I'm missing?
