Below are the commands/ syntaxes that control the behavior of the ProE/ Creo drawing. It has a .dtl extension and can be opened and edited using any standard text editor like notepad. The explanations of these commands can be found on the other pages of this website. You can also use the Google search box to find the help topic.
To know how to change the value of these commands see Modifying drawing options.
Sets the metric dimensions to be fractional when primary units are fractional.
Sets the secondary unit for dual dimensioning.
Controls display of offset between an ordinate dimension line and the witness line.
Controls the display of leading and trailing zeros for dimensions, floating parameters and notes etc..
Sets whether Lead_Trail_Zeros is only for dimensions of for all. i.e notes, parameters etc.
Sets the standard for ordinate dimensions display. (Ansi, ISO, JIS etc)
Controls the display of radial dimensions per ISO, ASME, JIS standards.
Forces fractional dimensions to display as feet inch if set to yes. Not applicable for metric dimensions.
Controls the extension of the witness line from the dimension leader arrow.
On / off intersection witness line for all newly created dimension that has an intersection as reference.
Sets the distance of the witness line from the dimension reference point/ edge to the dimension leader arrow.
Sets the default font type for dimensions, notes etc.
Sets the default arrow style for dimensions, detailed arrow notes etc.
Sets the default arrow style/ attachment style for notes, Gtols etc that uses leaders.
Sets the arrow style display of dots and boxes (Only for leaders of linear dimensions).
Sets the length of the leader line arrow for dimensions, notes etc.
Sets the width of the leader line arrow for dimensions, notes etc.
Sets the height of attachment for leader line integral signs, boxes and slashes.
Sets the width of attachment for leader line integral signs, boxes and slashes.
Sets the diameter of the dot attachment of notes, Gtols etc.
Sets the length of horizontal line of leader type dimensions, notes, Gtols etc.
Determines the font for leader extension lines of notes, surface finish symbols, and symbols.
Sets the default length of the leader line for datum displays in a drawing.
If set to NO, only outer ends of the axis display can be adjusted. If set to YES both inner and outer ends can be adjusted.
Set the default linear axis length (extensions) beyond its both associative ends/edges.
Set the default circular axis length (extensions) beyond its both associative ends/edges.
Example: Displays pitch circle for a radial / circular pattern.
Determines the placement of a set datum when attached to a diameter dimension.
Determines the location of set datum when attached to a GTOL control frame.
Determines the display style of reference datums in drawings.
