underlined dimension text

Hello,
when placing leaders or horizontal dimensions, my dimension text is placed
ABOVE the dimension line. In the case of leaders, the leader text is
underlined. I really want the text centered, vertically, about the
dimension line or tail of the leader. I checked the dimension style
settings and everything appears to be okay. What's wrong? Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Scott

I assume you checked the "text" and "fit" tabs under the dimension style dialouge box? Try reading those closely also as a temp fix try inserting your dwg into a new template. Hope it helps

I checked the TEXT and FIT tabs, everything is set correctly. Inserting into
a new drawing does fix the problem but any ideas as to why that fixes the
problem? (aside from changing some variable or losingthe corrupt
information)

Also, I usually work with civil drawings and setup my dimstyles accordingly.
Sometimes I work with structural details and, of course, the dimstyles look
different. For structural detailing I prefer zero suppression being set to
"0"- I want the dims to read 0'-4". The other day, my dims didn't look like
that, so I checked my settings and had to toggle on, then off, zero
suppression to get my dims to look right. I tried this with my current
dimension problem but it didn't fix the problem. Any other ideas?

DIMTAD is set to 0 or 1?

Permanently Underline Characters in dimensions

03-14-2012 08:21 AM in reply to: *DESHAWN, WILLIAM J

All, I have found that being able to underline characters such as 6 or 9 automatically in AutoCAD would save me time as well as eliminate shop mistakes. Does anybody know how use Dimension Style Manager and/or Write in new code that would allow these numbers to always be underlinded when they occur by themselves?

 

I already know the trick
