In Creo Parametric, the configuration file options control the design environment for parts and assemblies. This means that the configuration file, known as the config.pro file, is the master control file for the design environment.
The config.pro file can be accessed by selecting the File tab > Options > Configuration Editor.
An example of the Creo Parametric Options dialog box is shown here.
There is a specific file that controls the behavior of the drawing. This file is called the drawing setup file, and it has a .dtl extension.
The drawing setup file options add additional controls to the detailing environment. The drawing setup file options determine characteristics like the height of dimension and note text, text orientation, font properties, geometric tolerance standards, drafting standards, arrow style and lengths, and thread standards.
How To: Access and Edit the Drawing Setup File and its Options
1. Open your drawing file.
2. Click the File tab > Prepare > Drawing Properties.
4. An example of the launched Options dialog box is shown here.
5. Select or enter the required option in the Option area.
6. Set or enter the desired setting in the Value area. Default values are provided for the drawing setup file options, but Creo allows you to customize and save various versions for use in other drawings.
The drawing_setup_file configuration option allows you to specify the .dtl file that establishes the default drawing setup options for any drawing that you create during a Creo session. If you do not set this option, Creo uses the default drawing setup file option values.
