Interesting, I was finally able to get the glyph to show but it only gives me the dimension of the segment between the arcs. maybe the difference is due to my having arcs and not circles. I will keep playing with it and will probably get it to work with practice.
Thank you for your help.
It does look like the symetry command will be my friend from now on.
...that you can't insert parameters in the text of a dimension,...
On the edit dimension box, there is a button with a pencil on it.
If you click that, then you go to the text editor box.
In the text editor box, you can pick the part and the paramater that you want to show in the dimension.
You may be confusing with iproperties, which you cant pick for dims.
You're right - my mistake. Not sure how I was missing that, since I use it all the time in view labels. Thanks.
So, Jim, you can follow my previously posted method in a radial dimension, if you click the pencil icon first to get to the full text editor. Doing it that way, you'll only have to insert the parameter for the length, instead of both radius and length. Should take some of the pain out of it.
Thank you. It seems a long way around the barn to get something done, but at least we can do it.
this functionality should be added into the hole note tool
after all slots are considered to be elongated holes
I set the dimension names to slot_width and slot_length (refer attached) as I create them.
This makes it easier to find them when you create your leader note or dimensions.
