To uninstall this plug-in, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 ) or Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Windows XP), and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.
Once loaded, the DIMPATROL command can be used to turn on (and off) the
highlighting of potentially problematic dimensions: dimensions whose text has
been overridden and therefore may not match the actual dimension.
To change the transparency used, use the DIMPATROLTRANSPARENCY command.
