Feature Control Frame Edit Unit Attributes Use Standards Notation

Autodesk Inventor 2010 - How do I set default for "use standards notation" to off or unchecked in the "Edit Unit Attributes" dialog box for feature control frames? I want to do this because the Feature Control Frame style unit setting does not override it as I believe it should. This causes an extra value within the tolerance box of the feature control frame if the Standard General units differ from the style’s primary units.

I had a look at your image, and since you have your Inventor Project option for "Use Styles Library" set as no, you'll need to make the changes you want (if possible), and then save this drawing as a template. You can either replace the default Standard or save it as a new file in the Template folder structure.


When you start a new drawing and use this template, those changes should applied.
