Is there any way to get dimensions to appear below their line?
Important: I’m on Rhino for Windows so this might not help, I have no idea how Mac/Windows versions differ. But I’ll take a chance as you’re probably hoping for a quick solution in order to finish your work. I had to figure this out myself a couple weeks ago.
No matter where the text is located (prior to the first instance of it being moved), it’s grip is located in the center of the dimension, circled in red:
You’ll need to select the “linear dimension text grip” from the selection menu:
Then you can move it wherever:
I draw a “pline” and then do a “BlendCrv” to get a “Revit” style leader. It’s a slow method but at least I get the look I want. I wish it was automatic.
It’s a bit cumbersome to move the dimensions around. It’s one of the drawbacks but I gain back the lost time thanks to the program’s other strengths. And to be honest, once you get used to it, it’s not that much slower.
Hi John -
We have an open feature request for that - RH-53011.
