Locate and highlight dimensions that have been overridden in your drawing.

Have you ever worked on an Inventor drawing that someone else overrode dimensions on? This tip will show you a quick way to find these dimensions. 

  • First, open a drawing that you suspect contains overridden dimensions. Hold down the Shift key and right-click, then pick “Select all Overridden Dimensions.” (You can also go through the quick access toolbar at the top.)

  • All overridden dimensions will be highlighted. Now you can change them back to normal dimensions as needed. Try to avoid over writing dimensions when ever possible.
  • Dimensions will be highlighted as seen below.
