    Setting Drill Tolerance in Drill Legend Reply

     All,

    While editing a .dlt file, I also wanted to set tolerance in the drill legend. What is the proper syntax to enter tolerance?  Right now, all my drill tolerances come out as shown in the attached file.

    Cheers,

    Ron Scott CID+

     Did you have a peek in the user manual? :)

    Take a look at Manufacture->NC->Drill Customization.

    You might look at increasing your symbol size as well.

     Redwire,

    Thanks for the memory jog. I had forgotten the drill customization table. My symbol size is skewed right now because of a giant slot on the board. I first generated the drill legend only to have it expand to the extents of the board. Had to modify the .dlt, hence the small symbol size.

    Thanks,

     Can you help with my issue?

    My drill customization shows the holes as +-0.00, but my table displays 0/.015.

    Also, other holes with the same tolerance +-0.00 are displaying 'norme' (french for nominal).

    The impossible we do straight away. Miracles take a little longer.
