DICTIONARYVAR objects are used by AutoCAD as a means to store named values in the database for setvar/getvar purposes without the need to add entries to the DXF HEADER section. Currently, the system variables that are stored as DICTIONARYVAR objects are: DIMADEC, DIMDSEP, INDEXCTL, PROJECTNAME, and XCLIPFRAME.
