It is currently not possible to inquire brackets of existing dimensions.
For purposes of quality control, it is necessary to inquire brackets of existing dimensions.
Application in Germany: Erstmusterprüfbericht
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 dimensiondisplay (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!
