In the insert hole note dialog, see how i have to manually key in Dia 9.10 for showing the bolt circle. How can i eliminate manual entry.

I right click the hole note and "Text..." then you can access the parameters - name your bolt circle dimension so it's easier to find.


It's not automatic but at least it will change if you change the dimension in the model.

This is a great way to do it.  Yes, it is still just a little manual entry, but if something changes let the software do the work. Here is a screen shot of mine.

Remember, right click "Edit Text", no hole text.  Two different things..
