Default drawing label style

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how do I setup a default style for viewport's drawing label please? 


I have tried editing the built-in plugins in Plugin Manager, but that doesn't seems to work.


Many thanks in advance

Probably the best way is to style the Drawing Label as you would like and save it as a Red Symbol (Plug-in) in your symbol library.


Everytime you want to add a drawing label to a clean file, import this Red Symbol.


To make sure that all subsequent uses of the tool in this file use the same parameters, I find the easiest way is to use the Create Similar command (Right-click on object and select Create Similar). A new Label object will be created and all subsequent uses of the tool will use the same parameters.

Alternatively if you are using drawing templates then the most efficient way is to set up the templates with the most commonly used tools set to preferred default settings.
