I want to make all views in new drawings display "tangent edge with font" as the default.
How do I update the .drwdot so that this happen? Currently the default is "tangent edges visible"
Setup predefined views that are set to "tangent edge with font" in your drawing templates.
I was hoping that there was a way other than that.
Sorry, I wish I had a better or another answer for you.
The setting is a System Option for me, not a Document Option:
Tools/Options/System Options/Drawings/Display Syle, select "Use font" in "Tangent edges in new views" box.
I'm running SW2010, but I don't think remember hearing that it had been changed in 2011 or 2012.
Jerry is right with his answer. You can see that option here in the options box:
