Multi-line composite GD&T symbols per AMSE Y14.5 2009 standard

Multi-line composite GD&T symbols per AMSE Y14.5 2009 standard

Creo Elements/Direct Annotation and Creo Elements/Direct Drafting should allow multi-line composite GD&T symbols in order to meet the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.

Currently composite GD&T symbols are limited to two lines.    The new standard allows composite symbols with multiple lines.

It is not possible to use the current function and stack symbols in order to look like a multi line symbol, as the standard requires that the Tolerance box be extended to include all the lines in the composite.

For years I've wanted to create dumb symbols to do GD&T since this has ALWAYS been a complete pain to use.  The old symbols I created way back in the day for AutoCAD work much better.  You can stack anything anywhere and it's up to the user to get it all right.....as it SHOULD be.
