How do you change the weight of a dimension? I did some research and it says you can chagne it under the line weights flyout and then under annotation line weights, but I am unclear as to what I am chaning. What do the 1-16 corrolate to? Is there no way to change a specific annotation type instead of a global change? Some guidance and clairification wouldbe greatly appreciated.

The lineweights 1-16 are essentially identifiers for your preset lineweights.  It allows you to visualise it as a hierarchy of 1-16 increasing thicknesses rather than a bunch of arbitrary numbers.

 

To change dimension lineweights, draw a dimension, select it, then go to Properties->Edit Type.  There are options to change both 'Line Weight' and 'Tick Mark Line Weight' based on the presets.

 

To create a new style, click 'Duplicate' up the top of Edit Type dialogue.

FYI a lot of your project work will be duplicating existing types and changing parameters to get your result. e.g. I use floors for gardens and curtain walls for fences.

Thank you! I guess I was definitely making things harder than they needed to be.
