ST8 - Draft - Coordinate Dimensions - Cannot re-orient text.

Another issue with ST8 (MP03).  Dimensioning in draft environment this time.

 

In a drawing I place some coordinate dimensions (manual not automatic) along a vertical piece of geometry.  I wish to re-orient the numbers to horizontal and execute the command as I have always done but the text does not change!

 

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In a drawing create some coordinate dimensions in a vertical direction.  The text comes in oriented vertical by default.
  2. Select a dimension, right-click <Properties>, and under the <Text> tab set the <OrientationSmiley Embarassed to Horizontal
  3. Click <OK>
  4. The text does not rotate!

 

I have done this a million times on older versions of SE and never a problem.  Does anybody else have this problem?

 

 

 

 

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

Hi @chrisstandring,

 

Try going to the "Lines and Coordinate" properties tab.....

Hi Sean,

 

That works.  Thanks for that.  So it looks like a bit of a change up has been done for reorienting text.
