Yes and no.

Yes, you can set the sketcher decimal places in options and the onty way to change the text height is reducing your screen resolution.

Try TEXT_HEIGHT_FACTOR 40 in the config.pro. The tip is from Synthx; sy_tip_0307.htm which indicates a restart of ProE is required. Note, the larger the number the smaller the text. I dunno, that's what it says.

Thanks for the response it worked.

Please describe in detail I am new to software...I am not able to follow your suggestion.

Nisheeth; how do you manage your config.pro configuration file? Many of us do this with a text editor. This is the only way to add hidden options to your configuration.

Config.pro is one of the files that Creo reads when it is loading. It loads the file in the starting folder that is specified by your desktop (or other) Creo shortcut. If you need help with this also, please let us know.

This is the option that David is referring to:

Great find, David!

Here is a bonus... from PTC in 2006 but highly recommended for a browsing:
