Format Dimension Labels

On every dimension line you use, a label is placed along it showing details about that line/angle/leader.

These labels can show a range of different items such as units, decimals, notations etc.

For example, the label on a 688.5mm dimension could simply just display “688.5”. Or it could include a leading notation, such as a “W”, have a different colour, be placed on an angle or even include a trailing “mm”, as per the image below.

However, you can easily change this to show a different number of decimal places, or fractions or extra details. We do this by using the label details in combination with a format string, which is a special text code containing formatting information.
