Is there anyway of of setting up a drawing template to have the break line box ticked automatically. I have looked in the document options but can only see the option to change the gap dimension.
No, there isn't. I don't know how it would work if there was, since if there are two dimension lines crossing how would the software know which one to break?
Glenn, that is an excellent question. What rules would apply in what scenarios?
I normally break the dimension with the longest leaders, just because I think it looks better. If there was going to be an option to break them automatically in Document Properties I'd think that might be a place to start, with of course an option to break or un-break them manually. Other than that, I don't really know. Other users will likely have other ideas to consider.
