Put the    \P   in Dim suffix on original ( mm), not Prefix on alternate

John R had a long list of these Dimensions text formatting options.
I think they were on the deceased TurboCAD Wiki (RIP; we appreciated you Wiki).

Perhaps, if John has it in some image or other easily shared format, he could post it to the Tips & Tricks Board.  With a good Search-find-able Subject; and maybe Pin it.
Cuz sometimes I want to recall these, but don't use them enough to have any of them committed to memory.

Here ya go Alvin.

Unzip to a safe folder and open the "Format Codes.html" in your web browser. Bookmark the page. This has a column showing what an "Example" will give you. Copy something from the Example column and paste it into the Dimension “Text” field prior to creating a dimension, then snap the two points to make the dimension in the drawing. Experiment!

Index Color = the AutoCAD colors in TurboCAD.

Enjoy.

Thank You for sharing that John.

Is it Okay if I quote this or link to it or something in the Tips & Tricks board, with some subject line that is easily searchable?
