Drawing Font size?

Mark_50Mark_50 Member Posts: 6
is it possible to change the font size on dimensions?

I like to increase the font size on my drawings to compensate for folks that take a "C" size drawing and print it on "A" size paper. I generally use a 20+ something font and call for bold text. This makes the document readable.

Is this possible with Onshape yet?

    This is not yet possible in Onshape.

    I had the same question and got the following response from the very helpful support rep:

    Currently this is set by the template. In the first build of Drawings we are controlling a lot of the settings with the template... Currently you cannot change the template once you pick on but here are some notes to create your own templates:

    We are working on allowing more of this in coming builds.

    @Mark_50 , Currently this facility is not available in onshape. You can raise a ticket and or make an improvement request for this.

    Thanks. No need to make work for anyone. It is a feature that I find useful, maybe not so much anyone else.

    @Mark_50 ;
    Improvement requests are an invitation for users to vote on how useful they would find a given enhancement, as opposed to feedback tickets which are a private suggestion, so no worries on that score. 

    I personally think what you ask for is essential and inevitable, it's just a matter of when it reaches the top of the "To Do" list.

    We agree that it's essential and inevitable.  It is indeed getting near the top of our list.

    Any update on this? This is an item of high importance for drawing readability if your drawings are not so standard.

    Drawing dimension text size has been adjustable for a while now (Jan 2016). This field can be found at the top of the Properties flyout (accessed from the Properties button on the left end of the drawings toolbar).
