Drawing font size

Drawing font size

Can anyone help me to change the font size of just the super and subscripts of a drawing dimension? I have drawing (dwg1) that I want to look like and old drawing (dwg2). I can change the overal height and thickness of the dimension, but not just the super and subscripts. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately this is one of the ISO introductions. It is quite prevelent in the Euro drawings.

It is controlled in the drawing's *.dtl file and also in the model's detail options.

The tiny characters are just plain wrong. Tolerances are to be in the same size font as the dimension they are part of. I mention this hoping this is not a default part of the software.

The main thing I'd look at is that someone specifically changed the text height. You should be able to select just the tolerance and change the properties.

The second is that this is typed in text that has had it's properties changed.

ISO - Great. The same nuts that thought the toilet plunger was a good way to indicate a datum feature and infected the ASME Y14.5 committee with the same deficient thought.

Is legibility a bad thing in Europe?

I couldn't find it within PTC help, but it looks like it's been there for a while, hidden away.

tol_text_height_factor STANDARD

tol_text_width_factor STANDARD

Who knew the text STANDARD would accept a numeric value?
