How we do it is have it set n the configs for tolerances. Then we
would "show" dimensions, adjust through properties using the RMB the
ones we want tolerances, after that we would select the dimensions that
require no tolerances, hit the mapkey 'n' (for nominal) and they are
all cleaned up. I wish nominal was an option on the RMB....
If we where to put the "tol_mode" to "nominal" in the config.pro it seems to lock them to nominal...forever. Can't add tolerances later unless you dimension again...
No my friend, You can add tolerances to any dimensions.
the advantage is that when show/erase the dimensions appear nominal.
then u can add tolerances to the required dimensions.
u can try this for a simple part.
I know what you are all mentined here. What I mentioned here Can I
get tolerances for selected dimension in single click? (Ex:Show
and Erase) Can I set it (tolerance) in the sketcher mode? <br style="color: rgb(0, 102, 0);">

and this is true. When you RMB the dimension and go under properties the tolerance mode box is greyed out.
However, I found an option in the drawing set up called "tol_display"
This by default is set to no. When I change this to yes, I can
then change/add tolerances to the SHOW dimensions that were made
nominal by default.
The Description of this option is "Controls display of dimension
tolerances. You cannot access the Pro/ENGINEER Environment
dialog box if this option is set"
What exactly does this mean and does it really affect me?
