Text below dimension line

does anybody know, if it’s possible to paste an additional text under the dimension line? I was used to use it in V5, but didn’t find any solution in V6 :slight_smile:

Thanks, Petr

Is this what you’re looking for?

This works in V6 as well, you can either select the text and do it in the Properties window, or double click it to edit it. You might need to scooch the dividers in the window a bit to see the editing field.

John - not exactly. This option allows me only to put alternate units under the dim line, but I would like to use my own text.

Sam - please, I am obviously missing something, Is there any command or character for putting the text bellow the dim line?

The approach in V5 - make the dimension -> double click the dimension -> click behind the dim symbols -> hit enter -> write a text = finished

Yes, this was amazing while it lasted in R5…

Agree, would be amazing if it could come back in v/ :slight_smile:

Seems like you if you have alternate units turned on you should be able to edit that text/length similar to the way you can edit the text/length above the line. Currently this isn’t an option. It only let you edit the above line text.

oh. I just realized this thread it two years old. Sorry if something is already cooked up. I was testing it in V6.
