Re: Dual Dimensioning in WF4

There is an option to show dual dimensions but I do not remember it. Also there is an sentence that you type into the options box to get a listing of all of the options available in ProE, can you help me with this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Gerald

If you created your own dtl file, you can set it for every new drawing with configuration options (in config.pro):

drawing_setup_file ...path_to_file\your_file.dtl

pro_dtl_setup_dir ...path_to_file

You can create your custom formats and set configuration options (in config.pro):

format_setup_file ...path_to_file\your_file.dtl

Note: in old drawings do you need set dtl file manualy (you can use Mapkey too or ModelCheck)

Thanks for the info on this.

I realize that the Dual_Dimesion can be set in each drawing but I want it to be set in all drawings. Can you help me with this?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks, Jerry
