More Intuitive Workflows for Creating and Editing Datum Feature Symbols in Detailed Drawings

Workflows for creating and editing datum feature symbols are more intuitive. When you create a datum feature symbol, you can immediately see it in a preview attached to the pointer. You can drag this preview to select the placement location. There are multiple standards-based placement options which conform to the latest GD&T standards. After you place the datum feature symbol, the Datum Feature tab appears. Use the options available on this context-sensitive tab for editing properties of the datum feature symbol. When you select a datum feature symbol, the Datum Feature tab opens automatically. When the datum feature symbol is no longer selected, the Datum Feature tab closes automatically. You can modify the placement of the datum feature symbol by dragging it. If you place a datum feature symbol on a GTOL you can choose whether it attaches to the GTOL frame or to the leader by choosing the option from the right-click shortcut menu. Similarly, if you place the datum feature symbol on a diameter or radius dimension, you can choose whether it attaches to the leader or to the dimension line opposite the dimension text. Datum feature symbols can be created as a standalone annotation and do not require a plane or axis in the model or the drawing.
