Get a Lower Case "x" in an ASME Metric Thread Callout

Many forum threads about thread callouts, and here is another.


I have finally rolled up my sleeves and taken on the task of customizing hole callouts for our users. Actually, it all went pretty easily, and I have the "calloutformat.txt" file as I want it, but I have this one remaining issue, as shown in the thread callout here:


As shown above, the "X" in the thread callout is uppercase, but I would like to follow the ASME Y14.6-2001 standard and have a lower case "x", as in "M5x0.8-6H". I have gone into the Toolbox Settings tool and confirmed that in the Hole Wizard page, the values in the "Thread Description" column do have lower case x's. I did some test edits to confirm that my drawing callouts do indeed use those values in the "Thread Description" column. In my document settings, I do not have capitalization turned on.


Anyone know how to fix this?
