Dimension settings defaults

When I place a dimension it is 3 places, I can go into properties and change it to 2 places, but I have to do this to each and every dimension.

 

Is there an doption to change the default from 3 places to 2 places so that when I create a ne one it comes in as 2?

 

In addidion, can I make it so that my dimensions come in as fractions?

 

I am hoping it is an option in the .dtl (drawing properties) or in the config.pro (configuration editor) file.

Re: Dimension settings defaults

default_dec_places in config.pro can control the number of decimal places for a dimension.

deafult_dec_places 2

 

DTL file setting dim_fraction_format will control how dimensions use fractions.

 

Re: Dimension settings defaults

I found the decimal place option in the config.pro file (Thanks, it was an option that didn't show up until I changed the value).

But the fraction setting doesn't seem to do anything in the .dtl file.

I have picked the std and the aisc options (as well as default) and nothing seems to change with either option.
