Custom Settings for Symbol Labels

Note: Not every tab page is available for every label type.
Use the Content Setup tab page to define the information displayed in the label.
For the Generic and Dimension labels, the available element types – and therefore the list of possible parameters – is very extensive, and the Content Setup tab page looks like this:
Show parameters for the following tools: This control filters the content list in the bottom part of the dialog box. Select the tool(s) whose element parameters you want to choose from. (By default, all tools are selected.) The more tools you select, the greater the number of available parameters.
Note: If a particular tool is not selected in the “Show parameters for” section, you can still place this label on such elements, provided the element has a value that can be displayed by the label.
Define Label Content: Select the parameters whose values you want to display in the label.
For volume dimension data shown in labels, set the units at Options > Project Preferences > Calculation Units and Rules.
For all other dimension data shown in labels, set the units at Options > Project Preferences > Dimensions, using the relevant dimension type options. See Choose Dimension Type.
Set this option in the Custom Settings panel, in the Label Frame Style or the Label Geometry tab page.
If you are not using the Pointer Line (the Pointer button is off), then the Leader Line (defined in the Custom Settings panel) will be used. The line and pen settings of the Leader Line are also set on the Pointer Panel.
