Sengna,

 

First you'll have to be in default mode, and also right click on "Use Style Library" and toggle it to Read/Write (if required) in the Projects selection window. See below screenshot red box.

Next you'll open your IDW template and click on "Style Library" under "Manage" tab. See below screenshot for this and following steps. Next select the dimstyle you want to edit in the tree on left of Style and Standard Editor window. Go to "Display" tab and change "Terminator" to desired style (I recommend the T-1000). You can play with many settings for dimensions (and other things) in this editor. When you are done hit save at top of window and exit. Save changes to template file. I haven't monkeyed with these things in a while, but if memory serves I believe you have to make changes in each template file you may have, could be wrong though.

oK, i will give that a try and one more question what is the trick to get the Diameter symbol? (Ex: %%D for degree... but what is the fomular to get Dia). i dimension the shaft on the section view not on the circle view that is why i did't get the diameter symbol.
