Re-centring of Dimension Text?


New member
The dimensions in Inventor IDW files centralise text automatically when placed, however if you change the size of the part and update the drawing,
the dimensions do not remain central. How to reset it?


New member
Tools -> Document Settings -> Tab Drawing ->"Dimension Text Alignment" =
"View Position and Maintain Centered".
