Hello.

 

I have quick question. How to change defalut value that is presented in Resize Holes, Standard dropdown menu?

Right now my value is always set to ANSI Metric, and I'd like to change it to ISO Metric.

Hi @LukaszPL 

 

Try to check the Custom.xtm (open in Notepad) file in the SE directory.

I cannot remember if all in, but worth to check.

At this moment I have not accessed to SE on my computer.

 

Regards,

Arek

Hi @LukaszPL 

 

 

I assume, that this drop down list shows the existing hole table files (Excel files) in Your Holes Directory in alphabetic order.

So "ANSI" beginning with an "A" always will be the first, as long as their exists another file with a character before the "a".

 

I just have created a new file (copy) from ISO and have called it "01_ISO" - and - Yes it is appearing in the leading position instantly after.

@hawcadthanks for information. Seems that your answer is solution. I thought that maybe it's possible to set order differently since my default value of "Standard" is set to "ANSI metric" (it's second hole table file when sorting alphabetically).

Hi @LukaszPL 

 

 

 

Yes, "ANSI Metric" is the second in the list, but it is shown as first when changing the hole.

 

Why?

 

Since the existing hole - in that case - has a e.g. 8.0mm diameter, which doesn't exist in the Inch tables.

Therefore the first entry in the list is the table which has the existing diamter in it.

 

If You try to change an Inch hole You will see the "ANSI Inch" table as first entry in the list.

@Johnson_BigMattI gave KUDOS to @hawcadanswer and hesitated with marking it as solution because I thought that maybe someone will have different one Smiley Wink
