When creating a note with a stack the spacing is different than a stacked (limit) dimension. Is there a way to set the spacing of a stack in a note so it will look the same as a limit dimension?
I would like to change this too.
Me too! No answers?
Me too. This is especially frustrating when using a stack in the same dimension string as a "normal" bilateral tolerance.
Create a side view. Show this dimension in the new side view. Create a note in your original view and drag the dimension from the side view into the note. Then delete the side view. The note is now controlled by the dimension and should be parametric to the model if you did it correctly.
That would probably work, but I would recommend hiding the side view instead of deleting it.
I agree - Hide it instead of deleting it.
Thanks Brian, good tip. That is not quite what I was looking for. What was shown was just an example, generally the notes we use would not have an actual dimension related to them, just a set of numbers like: blah blah blah Tol. +.005 -.002 blah blah blah. I will remember your method for future use.
If you strictly want dummy text then use 2 separate notes. The first note is a single line with several extra spaces where you want the double line note to go. The single line note in in the example is orange, and the double line note is black.
That works also, I have done that exact thing as a work-around to get the look that is wanted..
Not fixed yet? I'm on SW2018.
2019 SP2 not fixed.
Has anyone actually submitted an SPR for this to get it fixed? The only ones I can find relating to line spacing and notes is just for the overall line spacing, not a stack region.
Stack and Limit tolerance functions are not meant to have common use cases. Looking at the examples above, I'm actually seeing needs that do not involve Stack, per se. For example, the OP case is a hole callout from the side view. The core need here is to have the ability to create hole callouts from the side view. In Keith's post, I see mixed case of bilateral tolerance I.D. with limit tolerance depth, where the core need here is to allow mixed tolerances. If SPRs are filed, I would suggest these rather than asking Stack to be changed so fakery can be employed. Why not address the core need directly?
My need was a rectangular slot with bilateral tolerances on both dimensions (a hole in sheet metal for a PEM TD-175 wire tie anchor). Are rectangles going to be handled in hole wizard?
Might be worth voting for SPR 534037: Add standard square holes to hole wizard library and SPR 753353: Ability to create Hole Wizard slots with flat ( square ) ends which should then give you the tools you need.
Maybe also a specific SPR for PEM TD parts needs creating (there's an open one for PEM SI type parts, SPR 1051253: Add PEM SI Ultrasonic Heat Staking insert holes to Hole Wizard )
