Add "Linear factor" & "Scale" to angle dimension

Post by johan162 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 8:54 am

For all other dimensional tools the property "Specific properties" has a "Linear factor" and "Scale" (e.g. linear, radius etc.). This is very handy when you need one set of dimension labels to not follow the application (or drawing) dimension settings. (I use it for example to have smaller labels in a detail that I display in a viewport with a larger scale than the main drawing.)

However, there is one exception. The "Angular" (DN) dimension does not have these special properties so it is impossible to adjust the angular label (relative) size without manually drawing the angular dimension.

Would be nice if the DN command also gets these properties in analogue with the rest of the dimension tools.

Not an answer to your question but ...
... sometimes it is better to put the dimensions into the paper_space.

The scale property has been added for angular / arc dimensions for the next release.
The linear factor property only makes sense for linear dimensions.
