AutoCAD How to remove the “R” and “Ø” Symbols in Radial Dimensions

October 20, 2020 Jeff Arbogast

Issue:

You are using AutoCAD Dimensions and you use a Radial or Diameter Dimension. When you do, you get an “R” or “Ø” in front of your Dimension value and you would like to remove these.

Causes:

These are set as defaults.

 

Solution:

You must place a blank space in the Prefix section of Primary Units Tab in the Dimension style.

  • Launch the Dimension Style Dialog (DIMSTYLE)
  • Modify the current Style or the one you do not want this value assigned.
  • Select the Primary Tab.
  • In the Prefix area place a blank space.
  • Except the changes and test your Dimension

Note:

-This could also be in a Dimension override if this does not work check the override style.

- To add these to the end place R or %%C (this is the code for Ø) in the suffix area in Dimstyle.
