V7 then for the above and below, though I need to get this job done then turn win7 into win10.
Wim, I turn on control points, I have a pair at either end, they move the location of the dimension measured distance, the one in the middle makes arrows become inward pointing on narrow objects if moved sideways. BUT nothing makes the text shift to left of centre.
If you are referring to the file that is attached in your first post, there is no 1" dimension in that. The picture doesn’t reflect the contents of that file.
I added a dimension using the same style as the radial dimension in that file and had no problem moving the value to the left:
That’s in the Properties panel when you select a dimension.
Note that, apparently, when using alternate units, you need to make sure that the dimension value sits slightly higher than the original position in order to have the arrows be moved to the inside. That appears to be because of the square brackets that extend below the base line of the numbers.
Also note that, if all else fails, you can always explode a dimension and move any of its parts anywhere you want.
