Does anyone know how to force the inspection dimension balloon to encompass all of the text?
I only surrounds the first line, not subsequent lines. See below
The inspection "balloon" is for the dimension. The additional information is just that, additional information.
The way the image is being presented the hole is created at the assembly level, not the part level?
Unless that is an interface drawing, If the hole is created at the part level, then that dim should be reference not inspection. The note makes sense to stay as is.
No hole, just a circle representing a gauge ball. In this case the gauge ball not falling through the hole is part of the inspection. Whether the practice is "correct" or not is not really the issue. The issue is why text on the second line is not included in the balloon. After all "additional information" from the first line is included in the balloon.
If text on subsequent lines is excluded by design, it would be interesting to know why.

Would it make more sense to say that the dimension is critical which means it would be assumed to need inspection?
My point is that inspection can imply more than dimensions. In this case it is a functional test.
Brett, Unfortunately the only way to get your text within the inspection box perimeter is to have it on the same line. This will make your dimension box pretty long depending on how much text you have but it's the only way I'm aware of sans drawing your own profile.
Once you hit the enter key and drop the text to the next line it gets kicked out of the inspection box.
Yeah, looks that way. Thanks John.
Kind of a goofy work around but if you add the dim (not inspection) then add a note, click on the dim, (this places the dim inside the note) then click on border > inspection, it will put the obround shape around dim and added text. Hide your original dim.
You will have to add an extension line with relations to whatever you are dimensioning. Attach your leaders. Then it is parametric and will change with model changes.
Or simply sketch an obround around your dim and text..
Interesting workaround. Would work perfectly if the arrows were automatic.
