Drawing Dimensions and Hole Callouts Improvements

Cris_BowersCris_Bowers Member Posts: 279 PRO
  • Baseline Dimensions - Automatically create stacked dimensions that start from a common line/point
  • Enable dimension text to be defaulted to center. Currently the text is positioned where your mouse is. I know you can snap it to the center with some work or open the dimension flyout and click on the "reset text position" button, but I'd like to be able to set the default position
  • Automatically space and reorder stacked dimensions
  • Horizontal fractions
  • Edit units and precision of hole callouts
  • Polar tracking for ordinate dimensions when adjusting positions
  • Adjust text alignment of individual dimensions; aligned with dim line or horizontal
  • Automatic hole counting for hole callouts. Counts per face, part, or current view would be great options.

    @Cris_Bowers Thank you for the feedback and we are paying attention.  Unfortunately lists of improvements are not able to be added to the improvement requests area since they  are not a single request which we are not breaking up.  Improvements we track per feature so we can follow up when those things are live on the service.  Everything you asked for here is logged and in the hopper.
