Char height of dimensions when 'modifying'

When you are working on a part and do a 'modify', the height of the dimensioncharacters is fixed. No matter if you zoom in or out. The height of the dimension characters stays the same.

On my screen, they look rather small.

Is it possible to change the size of these dimension characters? If so, how..?



Kind regards

Set the config option text_height_factor to some value. This is a hidden config option.



Close and reopen the model. All notes/dimensions/datum tags etc will be of changed size.



Default value is around 60, so setting the value to 30 will double the size of the text.

Hi!

I entered text_height_factor in config.pro and the text height changed indeed!

I find a value of 45 quite comfortable.



Many thanks!!



Kind regards
