Q - question

Inherit properties in additional continue dimensions.

A - answer How to set continue dimensions to inherit properties of the original main dimension? (dim style, extension line length, dim text parameters, etc.)

Properies "inheritance" is set by default. If your continue dimension uses dim parameters from the current dim style (not those from the former dimension), check the setting of the DIMCONTINUEMODE variable (since version 2014). In older AutoCAD versions, you can use the ADDSELECTED command to create same-looking dimensions.
