'FAQ/Tip: How do I set some dimensions on my drawing with an arrow
size that is different from the drawing's global arrow size?
The solution to this question requires the use of Dimension Favorites
and some preparation.
Open any drawing that has dimensions. Go to Tools
pulldown>Options>Document Properties tab> and select Arrows in the
left pane. This will bring up the window with several sections related
to Arrow sizes. In the Size section, change the dimensions of the
arrow as desired. Pick (left-mouse-button click) OK. This will change
the drawing's arrow size globally.
Pick any dimension on the drawing. The Dimension Properties pane will
appear in the Feature Manager area. SolidWorks has a Favorites section
for each dimension. This appears at the top of the Dimension
Properties pane. Pick Add or Update a Favorite button. Enter a name in
the corresponding window that appears and pick OK.
Pick the Save a Favorite button. This brings up a file save window.
Enter a file name and pick Save. This has now saved the Dimension
Favorite for future use by any drawing. Now quit the drawing (do not
save the drawing).
Open up the drawing where the new Dimension Favorite is required. Pick
the dimension(s) that will use the new Dimension Favorite. In the
Favorites section, pick the Load a Favorite button. Find and pick the
desired Dimension Favorite file and pick Open. The Dimension Favorite
will now be applied to the chosen dimensions.
