Adding Postfix and Prefix Text to Dimension Values


New member
When Postfix and Prefix text is added to a dimension in Wildifre, a space is required between the added text and the dimension.

When adding a '3X' as a Prefix or 'TYP' as a Postfix in a Wildfire dimension, add a space before or after in the Dimension Properties so that it will look correct in the drawing.

Example: 2X.125 vs. 2X .125 or .187TYP vs. .187 TYP
