Text size for dimensions

procer
Hello, I don't know if it's a feature or not, but is it possible to change the size of the text in a dimension?
I'm working with some small models, so basically once I've laid out the dimensions it's just a huge clutter of numbers.

Trying: modify>text> *click on dimension*
a pop-up titled linear dimensions comes up where one can enter text, but there's no size option.

my version is 1.02

Hi procer

"Edit->Current drawing preferences"

select "Dimensions" Tab and change
"Text Height", "Arrow size", etc.

Hi procer,

Modify>explode the dimensions.
Modify>Properties and select the text.
now you can modify just the text in the dimension.

This is because a drawing could contain multiple text sizes.

To rallaz,

Is it possible to make the arrow as an object (a hatched triangle) after executing above procedure?
This because sometimes i just want to scale it off manually.

For my, this is a bad idea, without exploding dimensions if you
 modify "Current drawing preferences" all the dimensions are
changed automatically. Exploding it you have to change one to one

A drawing can contain multiple text sizes. But only one dimensions text size.
in a near future will be implemented dimension styles and may have
dimensions with different text size without having to exploit

the arrow is a TRACE entity, and have a poor support, at this momment, the best option is select,
draw lines arround using "end point" snap, then "supr" the trace and add a hatch.

Hi mmar,

if you want have 40 instead of 39.999, you can play with precision.

Go to main menu, Edit -> Current drawing preferences-> Units

set precision there for length and angle, for example: choose "0" instead of "0.000"
