Setting Cross Section Text Height in .DTL


New member
Paul; Go to Advanced drawing set up and scroll down until you see. These options control cross sections and their arrows. You can then set the option to what ever you want.

Paul; In drawing Set up make sure you change value to what you want and the select apply and then close. After doing this regenerate your draft. Also if you right click on the arrow text you will see that you can modify text hight.


This value only changes the text height of NEWLY CREATED cross section views, you have to manually change old views.

The best thing to do is a different .dtl file for each style of drawing that you frequently make and load the appropriate file before adding any views.
