In the last couple of weeks, I've been asked the same question has come up.
How do I rotate my ordinate dimension text 90 degrees?
|The next I need to rotate|
It's a question that comes up every so often, goes away, then comes back.
Looking back in my archives, I've realized I've never created a blog post for this one, so here it is. How to rotate ordinate dimension text 90 degrees!
- First, choose the dimension style I want to edit, right click, and select "Edit Dimension Style". I can also go to the Styles Manager on the Manage tab, but the right click method is a little quicker I think.
|Editing the dimension style|
- The Dimension Style Editor appears, selected the dimension style. Click the "Text" tab.
|The text tab, where to look|
- This section contains the settings for text orientation. Select the "Vertical Orientation Tab", and rotate the text to be vertical instead of the default, which is horizontal. Save and close the Dimension Style Editor.

And it's done! One last step would be to save it to the styles library, and make sure it's available to all the drawings, if desired.

And naturally, there has to be a video that goes with it, so here it is!
