NX 8.5 - Appended Text Spacing

Experimenter
Experimenter

I apologize for the "noob" question but this is an issue that is driving me nuts. I have scoured the forums here and have not found a solution that satifies my issue. I can't seem to get the text that is appended below a dimension to line up equally TO the dimension .I will usualy just fake a dimension with a Note but I feel like I'm adding more work for myself when I do that.

I would like the text beneath the dimension to be spaced closer to the dimension or at least be able to adjust the spacing between the 2nd & 3rd row to where it doesn't look so off kilter.

 

I have tried playing with the text sizes and spacing of the lettering and all of that but I still can't get it to look right.  I'm still learning some of the nuances of NX but this is starting to become a distraction when I check drawings.  Call me OCD but I would really like to find a solution to this.

 

Thank you, in advance

Hi @Pfister_Jt,

 

Right click the appended text and choose Edit Appended Text.
At the beginning of the "beneath" appended text string, enter <Z1.5>

<Z1.5><#B><O>14.00 <#D>22.25
P.F. FOR DET. 2

You can change the Z value to meet your needs.

 

See if that helps.

Adding to the suggestion of @BenBroad, you can change the appended text settings to suit your need by changing the values of Text Space Factor, Line Space Factor and Dimension/Appended Text Space Factor.

Thank you both for the quick response. I appreciate the help. I was able to achieve the look I wanted through a combination of both methods.

On a side note:
@BenBroad: I have noticed a lot of <*> syntax used for symbols, text, and things of the like. Is there a list of all of these anywhere? Is "Z" the Line Space Factor?

Thank you both, again for all the help

Hi @Pfister_Jt,

 

Glad you were able to find a solution that worked for you.

Please reference "Using control characters to format text" for additional control characters.  You are correct, the Z value varies the line spacing between lines of text.
