NX - Making Changes to Linear Dimensions on a Drawing Sheet
For this week's Tip of the Week, I will show you several options to tweak your existing linear dimension style. If you want global options, you need to change the parameters in drafting preferences on the template. I will show you this process in subsequent tips. In this example, I will focus on making changes to an existing linear dimension on a drawing sheet including inside orientation, outside orientation, text aligned to dimension line and dual dimension. 

The next step is common to all 4 dimension modes demonstrated within this tip - right click on the Dimension > Settings:

1) Inside dimension arrow orientation
    Choose Line/Arrow > Arrowhead.  Under Dimension Side 1, choose the In option.   

2)  Outside dimension arrow orientation
     Choose Line/Arrow > Arrowhead.  Under Dimension Side 1, choose the Out option:

3)  Text aligned to dimension option
     Expand Text within the Settings box then select Orientation and Location. From the dropdown, choose Text Aligned to Dimension Line:

4)  Dual dimension option
     Choose Dual then select the preferred unit:

Thank you!
