I could really use some help on this one. If anybody know how to do
this, I am working in Acad 2004, I want to change the width factor of

In other words, I want to go into the dimension and change the width
factor of the dimension. These are associative dimensions.
Thanks so much for any help.
Here's my method...
I have multiple text styles created, one with a 1.0 width factor, and the
others with 0.9 and 0.8 and so forth, width factors. You then simply change
the text style of the dimension for which you want to have the smaller width
factor. The next way would be to explode the dimension and then change the
width factor of the dtext.
smallerwidthfactor. The next way would be to explode the dimension and then
change thewidthfactorof the dtext.
THANK YOU, I WAS CONSIDERING THAT WAY, BUT THOUGHT THERE MIGHT BE SOME
DIM VARIABLE THAT I COULD TURN ON/OFF, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THAT IS THE
BEST WAY, I.E. SET UP DIFFERENT STYLES. THANKS FOR HELP AND REPLY!

Left click on the dimension
In the text formating dialog box on the far right at the bottom you will
find the width factor. Change it to whatever width you want for that
