    I am sure that from time to time we have all heard, from boss or client, "I want it done this way" for whatever reason. We can 'grin and bear it', argue the point or find a less demanding profession (bean counter). You pick and choose your battles. Not that I am saying we should completely discard the standards most of us have been taught to follow. Most of the time I will argue the point but first I'll gather my supporting evidence before stepping into the lion's den. Know what I mean?

    I don't like how either of the pictures are done. The "1/8" should be below the dimension lines.

    The placement of the text is not as important as simply keeping the dimension line in alignment. The text goes where it fits, and in this example, you are correct in that it should be where it is less crowded up, below the dimension lines.

    Murph nailed it. Unless a client has a set of standards that are spec'd that go along with the job, it's you're own choice. You have internal standards, and client standards; anything that is internal standards is your own ballgame and rules. Do it how you please.

    Fwiw, the 2nd image is how my company does it and is more preferred in my opinion.

    "Industry standards" has a slight misconception with a lot of people in the design and drafting industry. Do they exist? Most certainly, yes. Is it imperative that you follow them? Absolutely not. The "official" documents are a go-by at best, and the term "industry standard" is a definition of common habits or practices IMHO. Company's are still free to do things their own way.

    Sit in on one of our monthly CAD and Revit Standards Committee's and this argument gets debated every time. Haha, it's really funny when some of our guys think there's some state or federal law governing how you present drawing information.
