Gtol placement?


New member
When I create a geometric tol, I can only place it horizontally irrespective of the direction of the dimension. Some times i need to place them vertically, What I do is, i right click on the Gtol and select edit text, in the edit text dialogue box, i change the angle from 0 to 90 and my gtol responds, i get it vertically, but a small line from the gtol leader projects into the gtol box and make the gtol look dirty. Does any one have solution for this problem?


If you apply your Gtol to a dimension with vertical text the Gtol will also be vertical.

For free standing Gtols, try adding a blank space before the Gtol with edit text and then adjusting the size of the small line with move text. Not perfect but better.
