Q - question

Selecting an annotative dimension displays all scales.

A - answer If you select an annotative drawing object with multiple annotation scales, all its scales are displayed at the same time (ghosting). Typically this occurs on dimensions and texts created with an annotative dimension style. Suppressing visibility of annotations does not help (the ANNOALLVISIBLE variable).

The display mode for selected annotation objects is controlled by SELECTIONANNODISPLAY variable.
