Dimension Subfix Tolerance

I created a hole dimension with a depth subfix.  Is it possible to change the depth subfix to 2 decimal places but leave the hole diameter at 3 decimal places? See attached.

Unfortunately, no. That would be a good enhancement. The only way I know is to specify the tolerance on the subfix.

If you use callout try:
%DI%{%HS/@3} x %{%HD/@2} DEEP

Re: Dimension Subfix Tolerance

@cimarian, Seems like a nice trick but I get an error. Where do you find info on custom text strings?

Thanks. Can you make that callout work?

I attached a pic showing the dimension tolerance.

Re: Dimension Subfix Tolerance

Oh, I made the mistake of not thoroughly reading your instructions and put in the dimension suffix tool where it apparently doesn't work.

Thanks for the feedback. That is a good work-around. I have submitted and enhancement request on this.
