    I have a file from a customer with all the dimensions aligned with Dim lines
    & I wish to make them horizontal, all the right boxes are checked in dim
    styles. is there a sys var or dimvar that might help? TIA

    2000i nothing seems to be able to update the dims. guess I could start a
    new dwg & insert the old one into it.

    ....but why bother? Use it as it is and save yourself a load of trouble.

    cause my job is to use it as a reference tool (for conceptual purposes only)
    & to field measure all components & compare, modify as needed & build/
    rebuild necessary piping & duct work. the dwg is a clusterfuck of useless
    lines that are part of different blocks & xrefs. I hate working in
    Architectural dimensions, but need to for some of the dimensions since this
    area is about 100 foot square. so I will turn on Alt units as Arch. crank
    the dimscale up to about 40 & fight through it.

    in the near future this plant will shut down & my job will switch from
    "draftsman" to project manager & I will be working as a foreman on sight.
    for every hour of downtime past the allotted shutdown time, my company can
    be fined for production loss. some of these systems generate $10's of
    thousands per hour.
