Text style for wire color/gauge

Hello,

I've been using Electrical 2010 for a little while now, but for the life of me I cannot remember how to change the text syle of the wire color/gauge leader. It comes in on the 'standard' layer, but I want to use 'simplex'. How do I change it? I can't seem to find any information for this particular issue.

Thanks in advance. :smileyhappy:

"The label text size follows the current AutoCAD DIMTXT setting and the arrow size defaults to the current AutoCAD DIMASZ setting."  Font style is DIMSTLYE

Yes, I did read that. But where would I find the DIMTXT setting? If I enter 'dimtxt' on the command line it only gives me the option of changing the text size, not the font.

Thanks.

Go to the Format menu and select the Dimension Style.

 

Now select the Text tab and you can change the font, style, size and a few other items. Other tabs allow you to change other settings to do with dimensioning.
