Point Style in SW

Point Style in SW

Point Style in SW

Is there a way to change how points are displayed on a drawing?  I have shown a 3D sketch that is just points.  The points are representations of holes on the part.  When I plot out the drawing the points get absorbed by my centerlines.  

I now need to change the way that the points are displayed.  In AutoCad you could tell the software if you wanted to have a cross or an X for points.  I have yet to find anything in SW.

 Does anyone have a Macro that would lay an X or a cross onto existing points in a drawing.  

Your help is appriciated.

RE: Point Style in SW

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to change the display type of a point.  The only types of points you can change are the virtual sharps.
