Q - question

How do I set tolerances for several dimensions at the same time?

A - answer If you need to set a specified tolerance in an Inventor drawing for several dimensions in one go, edit the first dimension as needed, then right-click on it and select Copy Properties from the context menu (a kind of "Property Painter").

Then select (window select) one or more dimensions to which you want to copy the properties of the source (first) dimension. The tolerance settings will also be copied. The dimensioned distances/angles/radii will remain tied to the original geometry.

You can also right-click while copying and use the Settings option to specify exactly which dimension properties you want to transfer. Make sure the "Accuracy and tolerance" property is checked.

You can also just preset the Dimension Style.
