Dimension Names

One query we get a lot on the support line is what are these bracketed names appearing after my dimensions in a drawing file? Dimension names are automatically created for every dimension you have produced, but whether you have them displayed is up to you. They can be toggled on and off using > view > dimension names.
Dimension Names

One query we get a lot on the support line is what are these bracketed names appearing after my dimensions in a drawing file?

Dimension names are automatically created for every dimension you have produced. Most of the time these are not visible due to a setting choice we use to de-clutter our graphics area. Dimension names, when turned on can be viewed in the part and assembly files but will also be brought through to the drawing which is where most users realise this.

 

Most dimension names simply appear as, (D number) however they may vary dependant on a few settings on your system.

 

To turn them off go to > view in your command manager > toggle dimension names
