In Solid Edge the text is horizontal

Start with picking one of those dimension to check the style it uses. The Command bar wil display this:

Open the Style dialog from the ribbon bar:

In the Style dialog, select 'Dimension' in the Style type list, then from the Styles list below it, pick the dimension style you noted from the Command bar in the previous step, then Modify...

 

In the 'Modify Dimension Syle' dialog that pops up, take the Text tab and change the Orientation to Vertical:

Ideally, you should create a new dimension style just for this case, since other dimensions in the sheet using the same style can be affected.

 

The screenshots are from ST6 and I believe there are some direct methods of changing the orientation using handles in ST9.

Hi @Geir-Petter

 

 

 

You have to use "perpendicular"

 

Then the text is normal to the dimensions direction for so getting vertical for horizontal dimensions.

It works with Smart Dimension, but not with Coordinate Dimension. I need to use this function.

Hi

by the way, since You have a coordinatexdimension group, You have to do this under the "lines and coordinates" tab, where is an extra options group for this kind of dims.

But again: "perpendicular"
