Is there a way to add a leading zero to the hole diameter when using the hole callout tool?
Go to tools>options>document properties
If the answer works for you then I guess it is answered.
I'm having the same problem. Leading zeros aren't showing up. I've got my doc. properties set correctly (like the pic) but it's still not right.
I've also got tolerance font size problems, but there's half a dozen other threads that don't solve that already.
Do we know if there is a way to set leading zeros as a System Option? I want this all the time for each drawing.
Set it up like this and then overwrite your drawing templates.
Ah, yes. But, unfortunately, I think I just need it on my machine; and not on the company template(s). Although, I could ask everyone if they prefer the drawings with "0.XX" anywhere there's a ".XX".
I don't use the hole callouts, so I could be completely off base here. It may be that hole callouts don't follow the document options for the rest of the drafting.
It seems to me that I've had cases where I make a dimension and then change the standards and the dimension doesn't change to match, that the standards only affect new dimensions, not existing ones. Could that explain your case? Or was I dreaming?
I believe this is a bug that they are working on (SPR 591053).
To work around the issue do the following:
1. Add the hole callout
2. Set your LEADING ZEROS option (these steps can be done in either order)
3. Click on the hole callout
4. Over in the property manager, under STYLE, click the first icon. It should be called "Apply the default attributes to the selected...."
This seemed to force the hole callout to follow the leading zero option.

Hope this helps,
Is not leading zeros used to show that its Metric. That is what I was taught.
According to Y14.5, yes.
when putting a dim to ,dual dim, i can only get either both metric and sae to show leading 0's or not show leading zeros. i can't get metric to have it and standard not to
