NOTE: Setting any of the following hole table values means that new holes tables added to the drawing use these default values. However, a hole table that uses a template table for insertion might not use these default values because the template table contains certain properties that take precedence over these default values. These properties include the tag style, precision values, combine tag, combine same size, and hole centers visible values.
