Ditto what Matt said. What do you think it means? I've never seen it.

here's a top view. the rad follows that contour. And, all my prefix are cleared out

SELECT THE .216 DIM THAT HAS THE "L" PREFIX.  THEN LOOK A THE PREFIX,  WITH THIS DIMENSION SELECTED...

Re: What does the "L" mean?

Additionally,

 

place a virgin dimension on the same radii,  assure prefix is tuned off and advise...  do you still get this "L"  prefix.

 

To my knowledge there is no Drawing standard Nor Solid Edge nomenclature that would add this prefix "L"

 

 

You said that you think you know what it means...?  What is your guess / speculation?

Re: What does the "L" mean?

IS THIS A MODEL / DRAFT YOU CAN SHARE?

 

CAN YOU HAVE ANOTHER USER TEST ON THEIR MACHINE.

 

MAYBE CREATE A VIRGIN DRAFT OF THIS PART AND TEST?

 

Re: What does the "L" mean?

It looks like if the dimensionned element is a spline instead of an arc.

The "L" then mean "length" of curve/spline.

No need to remove prefix or whatsoever.  Solid Edge take care of adding the "L" (like adding the "R" for radius, or diameter symbol for diameter).

 

But, can't figure why this element is a spline and other dimensionned arc are radius ...

Probably because the section goes through the curve at an obtuse/acute angle rather than a normal 90 degree angle.
