Advance Steel – How to Change Slope Dimensions to Display in Inches or Degrees


You have created a drawing which have sloped dimensions on it. You want the dimensions to display in inches rather than feet. Perhaps you have a client that wants to have the slope dimensions displayed in degrees rather than inches. How do you accomplish this in Advance steel?


This can be done locally on each drawing sheet, however, what if you have the same scenario on hundreds of sheets?

Not to worry. You can make the changes globally and have the changes reflect the created sheets after updating the database and using the force Update for the drawing or by updating the drawing in question.
