Dimension length factor

Not sure if this is by-design, but in v6, for a linear dimension to display as the model space length, you need to select 2 points from model space objects. In v5, you only needed to select one point from a model space object and the other point could be a Layout space object. This was handy when dimensioning to grid lines drawn in Layout space.

It would be great if we could revert back to the old behaviour. Or better yet, if any dimension drawn over a Detail automatically inherited that Detail’s scale factor!

You can see in the attached image, the dimension snapped to the CL is at 1:1 but the other dimension is at 1:2 (Detail scale factor).
