Dim text different colour for values / text..


Here's one for all you VBAists out there!

I want to, if possible, be able to show up ALL dimensions in different colours dependant on whether they are showing true dim values or their text has been overridden..

Par example, if a dimension's text has been edited in any way, i want the text to be one colour, say BLUE, but...if the dimension is showing its true dimension value and nothing has been edited in the text override, then colour this text RED..

Can this be done and if so, can someone point me whatever direction i will need or start me off..

Hi Paul,

Sure - look to the TextOverride property of a dimension object, that should get you going.
