I think this would be really easy to make.  I want to be able to add a second line of Dimension text. See Attached example of what I want. 


In the past I have always added text under the dimension and rotated it to match, but if you move the dim, the text dosn't go with it.

Override the DimText:



The <> tells it to use the measured distance, the \X tells it to use another line below the dimension line.
