Hide dimension unit symbols


Using Layout to produce drawings from models & all drawing have note “all dimensions mm unless otherwise stated” is there a way to have dimension just show the number, ie 1000 instead of 100mm ?.With some complex parts the “mm” just adds to the clutter


You can do this in the dimension inspector dialog.

  1. Open the dimension inspector from the “Window” menu.
  2. Select the dimension(s) to change
  3. Click on the button in the upper-right corner of the dimension inspector. If you hover over this button, you should see a tooltip that says “Display Units”. Toggling this button will show/hide the units abbreviation.

If you want this behavior to be the default for newly created dimensions, switch to the dimension tool, then toggle that same button to the “off” state. Any dimensions created after this point should have the units abbreviation hidden.
