Rotates the text of a dimension line 90 degrees when insufficient space exists for the text between the projection lines.

Specify the minimum clearance between the beginning or end of the dimension line text and the corresponding projection line. If the actual distance between the text and the projection line is less than the specified value, the software rotates the text 90 degrees relative to the dimension line.

Clearance of 0.01 m

In the above image, 0.01 m has been specified as the clearance between the end of the dimension line text and the projection line. Because the distance between the end of the dimension line text and the projection line is not at least 0.01 m, the text is not rotated.

Clearance of 0.002 m

In the above example, 0.002 m has been specified as the clearance between the end of the dimension line text and the projection line. Because the distance between the end of the dimension line text and the projection line is not at least 0.002 m, the text is rotated.

  • The positioning module Clear Space Margin with Dimensions (DwgMatchlineWithDim) uses the Dimension Text Rotate Clearance property.

  • You must specify a positive paper value.

  • You can use either metric or imperial units for this measurement.

  • To manually edit the .xml file, type a value for the minimum clearance between the beginning or end of the dimension line text and the corresponding projection line. Enclose this value within the following .xml tags.

<dimTextRotateClearance>0.002
