    Default Stacking dimension text on ext line?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    When editing a dimension with text, I would like to make the text appear both under and above the extension line.

    I know how to stack the text by using <>\pENTER TEXT.
    But this sits the txt above the extension line.
    Iwould like it to be split between as shown on the attached image.

    The maximum text will be over the 2 lines as shown.

    Thanks again.

    I think you need to use a capital X ... e.g. <>\XTYP

    Yes, It has to be a capital X e.g <>\Xtext.
