View Full Version : Dimension text alignment
22nd Sep 2003, 09:20 pm
Anybody know how to set the "dim outside align" variable to "off" in the dimension style? Right now I'm just changing it for any text that happens to go outside the extension lines, but it'd be nice to change the default. We're running AutoCAD 2000 LT, but if you know a way to set it in the full version, pass it along anyway -- I'm crossing my fingers for an upgrade soon. :-)

In dimstyle look at the FIT tab settings.
ALso hit F1 and look through the system variables.

Found it -- DIMTOH makes any text outside the dimension lines horizontal. Now I just gotta go put it in all our standard styles...:-)

Okay -- I didn't realize what the ISO standard actually did, since the sample dimensions in the dialog box don't show any where the text is outside the extension lines -- except the radial dimension, which I thought was an exception. :-) Anyway, I think I've got it all straightened out now -- thanks again. :-)
