Dear all,

I am looking for, how to change setting for dimension between keypoints.

 

Solid edge--ST7-- Assembly--PMI--dimension--smart dimension--dimesion between keypoints

 

Its always setup on center and endpoints.

My question is, how can i setup to all endpoints as my default setting?

I sugest trying the point to point dimension rather than smart dims. This solved a few of my problems when I started using it. It is a slower tool most of the time, but when you need it, it's there.

Hi there,

 

Use the "Distance Between" tool instead, then select "By 2 Points" from the orientation drop down....and you can also isolate select entity types, with the "Keypoints" filter.

Thank you for responses but I think my point is different. 

My question is how to set up my preference of keypoints to "all" instead of "center and endpoints" as default so that i dont have to keep changing it. please check image.

I do not believe there is a way to do this.
