Set Dimension preferences in Drawing

Set Dimension preferences in Drawing

Set Dimension preferences in Drawing

Good morning,
I've been trying for days now to look for an answer or previous post for my problem but I'm having no luck.
My issues is I need to set the Dimension Format to "Dual Dimension 0.02" instead of "By Standard" for Inventor 2013. Is this something thst cannot be done? I have tried everything I know and I dont understand why this could be so complicated. Any tips would be greatly appriciated.



RE: Set Dimension preferences in Drawing


what's "0.02" ?

Annotate/Format/Edit layers/Dimension/New(or existing)/alternate units

Not sure if that's an answer to your question or something you already have tried.

Hi Mekanikles,

The 0.02 si part of the dimension name "Dual Dimension 0.02" I have managed to change the setting on the Standard but everytime i restart Inventor it loses all of the changes I've made. I have tried creating a new standard, a new object default, nothing seems to stick.

I have attached a snip for more clarification.
