Drawing Setup File Options
Pro/ENGINEER saves drawing setup file options with each individual drawing and drawingformat. These options determine characteristics such as the height of dimension and note text,text orientation, geometric tolerance standards, font properties, drafting standards, and arrowlength. You can modify the default values of these options to customize a drawing and save thefile for use in other drawings. The system saves (and retrieves) the drawing setup file values in a``drawing setup file'' named ``

If set to``horizontal,'' displays text of angular dimensions horizontally atall times, centered between theleaders (equivalent to the value``horizontal'' for the drawing setupfile option ``text_orientation''). If set to ``parallel_outside,'' displaystext parallel to the leader lines,regardless of their orientation(equivalent to the value ``parallel''for the drawing setup file option``text_orientation''). If set to``horizontal_outside,'' displays texthorizontally outside the dimension.
