I'm kind of a new user, but this behavior just doesn't seem right.
I created the Zone Border like normal. I edited the appearance of the 'ABCD1234' text slightly:
- changed to center and middle justification.
- changed width to 120%
- changed color to black
The edits to 'ABCD' took effect and look just right. The edits to '1234' don't stay edited. I save the sketch, it looks okay, then when I add it to Sheet:1, the numbers have gone back to blue and lost the width and justification edits. But the letters are fine. What the heck is going on?
Open the drawing template. Open the Drawing Resource folder, open the Borders folder. right-click on Default Border and select edit. Make any changes you want and save. Make sure you save the file as a template when done. All new drawings will have this border.
For older drawings, delete the border, from the drawing and the Border folder. Open a new drawing, open the borders, right-click and copy, go to the other fdrawing, select the border folder, right-click and paste. Double click to set that border on the page.
As for the text, each text style has its own style in the Styles editor. You will need to edit both styles, but suggest you copy the original Note Text style and rename to Zone Text.
Then you need to go to the standard at the top, selecting the default. Then to the Object default tab, and click the little pencil icon. Find the border text and change it to your new zone text.
It sounds like you might have two different text styles you might have to reset. I don't know which ones they are, do not use the default border anyways. Most likely you are going to have to copy it and rename it so it will let you edit it.
