I use a single IDW template for all my drawings. In it, I've got multiple dim styles.... One is Inch, one is mm, and one shows alternate units as Inch (mm).
In my titleblock, I've got a box that says "Units: " and I've currently got this setup as a prompted entry so that I'll have to think about it when I start the drawing and manually enter "Inches" or "mm" or "Inch (mm)".
Is there a way to automate this so I don't have to manually enter it, or remember to change it if the units change down the line?
I did not try, but the first I think of is to embed an auto macro with the template and do the job in auto open. Is it helpful?
further thinking: probably it may help if you could try with iLogic event [After Open Document ]. i.e. embed the rule to the template document, ask Inventor to run the rule when document is opened.
Yes, I've got a plan together now. I'm going to start programming today..... I'll post the results here.
