first, i'm on the ANSI system, not AFNOR.

when you put an angular dimension, does this happen?


where the text is on top of the line. I know I can modify (wrench) the dimension and put it over or under the line but I'd like to know if there's a way (an option, parameter) to always have it on top or under, without having to modify each dimension.

Yes you have to set it in topzdft.cfg in the config folder:

# Vertical alignment (0: on top, 1: centered, 2: below)

Best regards

I tried it and it changes it for all types of dimensions, which i didn't really want...
and what about templates already existing? How can i get the changes to aplly to the templates? simply re-opening them and re-saving?

Yes, It is normal that you didn't have that one in your topzdft.cfg. It is a special hidden key-word! :twisted:

Sorry, it works for all dimensions, no way to only put it for angular dimensions (as far as I know).

It is a general setting, should have nothing to do with template.
