Here’s a quick Tuesday tip for you.  A feature in Inventor drawing annotation that gets overlooked often is ‘Copy Properties’.  It works much like ‘Match Properties’ in AutoCAD.
In the example below, I want all the dimensions to match the style of the 20.000” dimension that is circled. It is a simple two step process.pi1

Step 1

Right click on the dimension with the properties that you want to copy. In this case it is the 20.000” dimension.

Step 2

Select the dimensions that you want to match the first and you’re done!
You can’t get much easier than that!
Take care,
