  3. View either no legend, just the Hole ID or the complete Hole Legend.

Hole Legend

Holes are grouped in 2D Layout View based on their ring grouping. Holes within the same ring are grouped with all holes side-by-side.

The spacing between holes within a ring, and between rings IS NOT to scale. All holes are displayed in the same orientation with all holes and rings are spaced equally with the relative length of displayed hole tracks, proportionate to the different lengths of the holes.
