The only setting besides the gap of the break is:
Tools - Options - Document Properties
"Break around dimension arrows only"
The actual break is per the ANSI Dimensioning Standard.
Thanks Eddie. We do not want to customize the break lines in any way. We just would like to have the Break Lines option ON (checked) by default. Currently when a new dimension is added on a drawing the Break Lines option is OFF (disabled). Do you know if this option can be set to ON (checked), either through a system option or by somehow defining it on the drawing template?
I have tried to preset the option in drawing templates but the check mark does not stick.
The only reasoning I can think of is that if all dimensions were set this way, it would create unnecessary overhead.
This is just one more question that should be answered by SolidWorks.
Good Luck to All,
...but as I always say, "Don't hold your breath!"
I tried to play with it and seems it might have to be changed in the SW registry or some macro might of any help here.
Thank you both. Will bounce this to Support.
