For purposes of quality control, it is necessary to inquire brackets of existing dimensions.

Hello Ralf,

In Drafting you have the possibility to inquire this with the function INQ_ELEM
| | 902/903 | dimension prefix text (s) |
| | 904/905 | postfix-dimensional text (s) |

I've tried in the v17 and it works.
INQ_ELEM  enter then click on dimension
display (INQ 902) enter results in a dimension with brackets  '(and display (INQ 904) enter ')'

If no prefix or postfix is present then the answer is 'END-OF-LIST'

Unfortunately, this is not a solution.

Brackets are created with CHANGE_DIM_TEXTS MAIN_ALL BRACKETS ON. This command creates no prefix or postfix.

An other workaround

DA_STYLE_GET updates the current dimensioning style settings to match the settings of a selected dimensioning element.
DA_STYLE_GET and click on the dimension.

Then you can ask with INQ_ENV 16
display (INQ 602)  current bracket flag of main dimension text
             - ON, bracket is ON  - OFF, bracket is OFF

That will work. It just needs to finally reset the default setting for dimensions. Good idea! Thank you!
