Routine automates process of checking accuracy of dimension objects that aren't based on the actual geometry but have been typed by the operator.

Locate Override Dimensions (Tip #2192) by Bill Gilliss searches for dimension objects that aren't based on the actual geometry but have been typed by the operator. This tool is handy when working with drawings that originated elsewhere and when you need to check for accuracy. The program simply changes the layers of any dimensions that don't meet the basic criteria to FORCED_DIMS. After loading the LISP code, type FFD (Find Forced Dimensions) at the AutoCAD Command line. Then you can select the dimensions to check. Any that don't contain an associative reference (<>) or that aren't blank text are moved to the FORCED_DIMS layer so that you can verify the values. If the drawing is to be used in a downstream application that requires accurate graphics, this step is essential and Bill's routine makes it easy.
