You can place a dimension text centered on a drawing, but if you change the length of a part the dimension text is not centered anymore. I would like to have an option to keep these dimension texts centered.
Hi arjendenobel3640 ,
If you go to the Tools tab > Document Settings button > Drawing tab, you should find a setting called Dimension Updates.
You can set this setting to Sheet Position and Maintain Centered.
This settting retains centered dimension placement while all other dimensions maintain their positions on the sheet.
Is this what you're after?
Also, you can adjust the default placement behavior by going to the Tools tab > Application Options button > Drawing tab, and setting the Center dimension text on creation option.
See this link for a bit more on using that settting (the last paragraph sepecifically):
I hope this helps.Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,Curtishttp://inventortrenches.blogspot.com
