1-How I can set the hole symbol to be after hole size?

2-How I can set hole information (text) to be in a box?

I'm using version 2010.

Hello Greg,

1. What did you mean by hole symbol? (is refering to the hole type: round/slotted..?). Also, all the informations regarding text arrangement could be found in the path below.
2. Text is depending of the style used for your drawings.
As an example for a drawing style: Open "Drawing style manager"-"User" branch - "MainPart - UCS" - "Object presentation" - "MP - Ho - Top" - "Annotation strategy" and in the dialog you need to use "Frame" for text.

Hope this will be helpfull.

Hi Roxana,

Thanks for reply. What I mean is hole diameter symbol, the circle with line on it which appears before (left) of hole size.

Really late answer on this one. I recently discovered that if you hold down the alt key and type 0248 then release the alt key, you will get a small diameter symbol like this °. 0216 is a large symbol Ø. This has worked in every label edit I have tried in AS

I also put this answer in the "tips and tricks" thread.

Good luck.
