Replacing angular dim. value with letter


New member
How do I change an angular dimension value from a numeric (model based) value, to a letter so that I can then refer to a table?


OK.. figured it out with a little help from a buddy here at work.

But if anyone else stumbles upon this, here is what to do.

First select the dimension value you want to replace.

Then start annotation editor. The selected value will not be shown in the annotation editor text window.

Select the dimension value again and it pops up. Change the value, you'll get a warning but click it away and then hit OK.

Job done... and everyones a winner!
