I have been playing all day long with Hole callout and I like what I see so far. But I am not able to figure out what setting controls the spacing between the callout components (for example between 4 and X in the pattern count as depicted below).
Any ideas? This will be like icing on the cake for me.
Also, from what I read in the forum, it seems not yet possible to add custom prefixes and suffixes in the defaults or save a favorite. But at least, "inherit" seems to work.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can't see it, but there is actually a space in front of the default suffix and prefix characters for a threaded hole. You can fix this in your Drafting Preferences dialog (so that all new dimensons are created correctly), or the Settings dialog (when you edit an existing dimension).
In either dialog, go to the (Commnon)-->Prefix/Suffix node and in the Hole Callout group do this:
You can set preferred characters in your Customer Defaults file, or in your template files, to customize the prefix and suffix characters. Better yet, set up your own Drafting Standard default file, and invoke the standard before you begin a new drawing. This standard file will adjust all of your preferences at one time using the Menu-->Tools-->Drafting Standard command.
