The prefix to be displayed with the displayed dimensions value
The suffix to be displayed with the displayed dimensions value
When selected, the value entered here will be used for the dimension instead of the actual, measured value. Note that using this field causes the dimensions to become non-associated. This means that KeyCreator will not update the value of the dimensions, if the geometry to which they are attached moves.
The actual value of the dimension as measured by KeyCreator
The dimension modifier displayed before the dimensions value and after the prefix
Insert space after modifier
When selected, a space is placed between the dimension modifier (if any) and the dimension value
Use font characters where applicable
When selected, any modifiers that can be displayed as a font character will be. For example, the diameter symbol can be displayed in any font. But the square symbol is only a symbol and cannot be displayed in different fonts.
When selected, the text entered in the edit window is displayed, instead of its calculated value or the entered user value. Note that using this field causes the dimensions to become non-associated. This means that KeyCreator will not update the value of the dimensions if the geometry to which they are attached moves.
