Wish: option for putting text dimension always outside


Maybe there already is a solution to this and I’m just ignorant about it, but here is the problem:

By adding a dimension, there is only two options to define the position of the text: either ‘Above line’ or ‘In line’:
When ‘Above line’ is selected and the measured points are located above (1) or to the left (2) of the text, the text will then display over the lines, which I found not really optimal:

Would it be possible to implement a setting, which forbids text to display over the arrows and extension lines?
It also allows to have constant spacing between the drawing and the dimensions (green arrows).

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
