Text color not associating with text style

Recommended Posts

Hello VW community,

I am having difficulty with designating a color to a dimension. To be sure it was nothing in my existing file, I started with a new document and created two items: A plain text box and a dimension line. I created a text style with a blue color and was able to drag the text style onto the text box without issue. The same process applied to the dimension had no effect. The only successful way to change the color of the dimension line was to manually assign a color from the attributes window or to create and link the dimension line to a class with the desired color. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Nik, testing in VW2014, I find that the text style will control the font of dimension strings but not the colour.

Seems you are stuck with the attribute method or the class control.
