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.
Controls the orientation of the model grid balloon texts.
Sets the location of the model grid text inside the balloon. This option is affected by “Model_Grid_Text_Orientation”.
Blanks the zero value in the tolerance display when set to plus or minus tolerance mode.
Displays tolerance values multiplied by 1000 except for angular dimensions. i.e. 1 becomes 1000 and 0.2 becomes 200.
Controls the display of symmetrical tolerances of dimensions in drawings. Only standard options are available.
Controls the display of tolerances in drawings. Does not provide option to give tolerance to dimensions when this option is set to NO.
Specifies the height of tolerance text in dimensions in terms of percentage of the dimensions text.
Specifies the width of tolerance text in dimensions in terms of percentage of the dimensions text.
Select dot (.) or comma (,) for the use of decimal point in secondary dimensions.
Determines the unit for all drawing parameters including the values that are used in drawing options.
Controls the display the tangent lines between the spool/segments of cables in the thick Cable display mode.
Controls the default text color and view boundary colors in drawings through available standards.
Controls the maximum allowable balloon radius.
Controls the minimum allowable balloon radius.
Controls the display format of &pos_loc text in notes and tables. Eg: Drawing zones.
Flips texts in symbols that are rotated upside down.
Sets the placement of weld spot symbol per ANSI/ ASME standards.
Sets the display standard for weld symbols and weld notes in a drawings.
Selects the display of parameters between YES/ NO and TRUE/ FALSE in drawing notes and tables.
Sets the display of dimensions in area/local unfolded cross sectional views similar to dimensions in total unfolded cross sectional views.
Sets the length of line fonts. Similar to line type scale (LTSCALE) in AutoCAD.
Controls the orientation of dimension texts in drawings.This is a overall setting. Other options are available to control the orientation more precisely.
Sets the view name style for newly created detail views. i.e. Alphabets or Roman letters.
Controls the placement of view notes. Not used in ProE wildfire versions.

Specifies the thickness of the cutting line segments at the ends/ corners of the cross section cutting arrows.
Controls the display of cross hatches for 3D cross sections.
Controls the display of the line that separates the section portion from the normal view when the section is set to half view.
