Add linear_tol_0_* and angular_tol_0_* parameters to the detail .dtl files

Add linear_tol_0_* and angular_tol_0_* parameters to the detail .dtl files

The values in these parameters are difficult to access and edit in existing models. If they were added to the detail options of a part that would make changes/updates as simple as importing a new .dtl to a model.  

 

Current method to update all manual method in spoiler:

Add a note and input the parameters:

&linear_tol_0_

&linear_tol_0_0

...

&linear_tol_0_000000

&angular_tol_0_

&angular_tol_0_0

...

&angular_tol_0_000000

With the note made now double click on each to bring up the edit value dialog. Input new value, enter, repeat for all 14. Then select the note and delete it.

In addition to this I have found that even the workaround to make a note to edit the values is limited and does not allow editing the number of decimal places that show. 

I find it very odd that this is not fixed with the huge push for MBD. These the are default MBD tolerance definitions and they are not able to edited in existing parts.
