Dimension Display

RE: Dimension Display

In the drawing setup file, the option default_lindim_text_orientation is the option that changes the dimension orientation.

RE: Dimension Display

Steve, I'm not sure you can set limit dimensions to show as "stacked" if that's what you're asking. As far as I know they'll only show in a single line. This is acceptable per ASME Y14.5.

RE: Dimension Display

Limit dimensions can be displayed stacked as that is how we do them.


Set your config.pro for the display style your company prefers.

RE: Dimension Display

What is the option in config.pro? I can't seem to locate it. Thanks.

RE: Dimension Display

Look in the drawing properties/.dtl files.
