    Is there a shortcut-key to change to a custom text position in Solidworks

    Owen Long

      When dimensioning a drawing, I constantly have to reopen a dimension and choose the "custom text position" to change the dimension to display horizontally if needed.

      It places the dimension vertically by default and that's OK sometimes but, have to change it if not.

      Is there some kind of shortcut key or F-key or alt that I could press when creating the dimension so that it will display horizontally when I want it to?

      I can use the paintbrush but, seems like it would just be easier to select it when creating it.

      Any reply is appreciated.
