Hello,

In your drawing.dtl file, there are some settings that you can use for dual dimensioning:

Dual_Dimension_Brackets (shows secondary dim in brkts)

Dual_Dimensioning (on or off)

Dual_Secondary_units (which unit to be secondary)

Just start typing the commands I listed above in the Options box and they will come up. To make viewing easier, set your sort to By Category. Good Luck!!
