Point Symbol List Window

Point symbols are symbols that can be displayed for each point in a measurement. Dimension provides a limited set of point symbols. You can copy symbols found in a drawing and add them to the point symbols. The Point Symbol List Window provides a list of point symbols. You can add, clone, delete or change point symbols from this list. (The standard point symbols provided by Dimension cannot be deleted.)

This window can be invoked from the Main Menu's Options/Edit Standard Scales option of the Ribbon Bar's Settings tab.
