Dear all
Hope you guys are well.

I have some problem with dimensions. 
In my drawing, the dimensions properties are same but when I draw NEW dimension with DLI so the text height of the new dimension is bigger then old one, even when I MATCHROP the new dimension with old one or the old dimension with the new one, so it doesn't match as it should be... 
you can see the attach picture

Probably the "OLD" Dimension is manipulated manually.
Check the text size of the OLD Dimension via properties pallet.

Then check the text height defined in the Dimension via ddim command --> Modify Dimension --> text tab
Adjust the height when preferred.

or upload the drawing to make it easier to solve the problem.
