Hello All,
Newbie here.
My floor plan shows dimensions in grey on all walls.
How do I disable them so they will not print?

Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris,

Are these the dimensions that only show up when you select the walls (or are only *supposed* to show up when the walls are selected) ??

It sounds like you might have a problem with the functioning of the wall-dimensions.

Or did you add the dimensions as separate shapes?

As the VisioGuy says, if this is the standard walls/room type shape then select the shape then
menu Window -> Show Shapesheet
in the User-defined cells section have a look at the row User.visBESelected, it should be set to "1". Now on the drawing page click on the background, the above cell should change to "0".
If not the the addon that controls these shapes has stopped working.
A quick fix is to set the above cell to "=Guard(0)".

Yes, that's what I've been told, "they are only supposed to show up when the walls are selected"!?
I did what Paul suggested and that took care of my problem for now.
Why are my wall-dimensions not functioning correctly, is this common, is there a fix?

Thank you guys for the quick responses, very much appreciated!
