Limits Dimension (Side by side vs Above/Below)

What config in the drawing config file controls whether a "Limits" dimension is Lower-Higher (side by side) vs Higher/Lower (above and below)?

ProWorkAround:

 

Making sure that the default_tolerance_display_style: std_asme

 

A new dimension was created and now its hyphenated.

Then delete  erase old dimension (in case the stacked version is used in another instance and will disappear from those instances).

Oddly enough, it doesn't seem to be doing anything in my test drawing.  Hmmm.  (Creo Parametric 6.0.5.0)

Server reboot causing other issues. I'll have to get back to this later.

Hi, 

 

It looks like this option might be the one you want to mess around with. I did a quick test and it looks like the orientation of the dimension matters. This seems a little odd and definitely inconvenient. There's also separate settings for the other types of dimensions.

TDaugherty, What are you opening to get that pop-up window?

Re: Limits Dimension (Side by side vs Above/Below)

In drawing mode:

File > Prepare > Drawing Properties > Detail Options

 

This menu is where you can create and export dtl files.

Both of my drawings have default_lindim_text_orientation: horizontal

Re: Limits Dimension (Side by side vs Above/Below)

Doesn't this config have to do with the text being inline with, above or below the leader?

Re: Limits Dimension (Side by side vs Above/Below)

To be honest, I haven't done enough testing on this to be sure of anything at this point. I just created a dimension and set up a limits tolerance. I then adjusted the orientation and I saw the limits change from being stacked to being hyphenated. I too would be very surprised if this option controlled the tolerance display but it did seem to have an effect in the quick test I ran.

 

I've got some more time now. I can jump back in and see what I can find.
