What is the config setting that allows you to show the tolerances at
the bottom of the display area and how do you modify it? I would
like to add the 4 decimal place tolerance.



Thanks,

Erik

tol_display yes


linear_tol_0.0 value


linear_tol_0.00 value


linear_tol_0.000 value


etc.


or for angles;


angular_tol_0.0 value


etc.

As far as I know, you can't change which tolerances are shown on the bottom of the graphics screen. The ones that are not shown are a real PITA to change. The only way I know is to make a drawing of your part or assembly and create parametric notes with the parameters jfausch listed above. Then you can change the value of the parameters. Why Pro/e doesn't give us direct access to them is a mystry to me.

Yeap, that's what I've done, but in WF2, and 2001 for that matter, I've
not been able to add the 4 decimal valve to the display screen
. I guess I'll remove the .xxxx from my standard tolerances on my drawing format.



Thanks
