Dimension text offset

Recommended Posts

I've searched the forum and kbase but can't find an answer.  Sorry if I missed it.


I want the text offset of my dimensions to be 0", but I can't find a field in the dimension preferences to do this.  I can make the change to a dimension in the OIP, but I want the text offset to default to 0".

You should be able to control all of those offsets by creating a custom dimension standard in your document. I believe I start talking about it around 1:20 here:

Thanks; I watched this video this morning, and while it doesn't explicitly address dimension text offset, I found the setting which makes the change I need.
