Visible Sketch Dimensions on Face of Part

Hello Users,


I'm making a part and am adding features to it and using my existing sketch dimensions as my guide. The problem is that when there are sketch dimensions on the face of the part, they are difficult to read. I'm forever dragging these dims to the side in order to read them, it's just a bit annoying. I was wonering if there was a setting that made them show up as well as they do when the aren't sitting on the face of my parts. I've attached a .jpg of what I'm talking about. Please notice the dimension on the left side and the bottom. Can anyone suggest a solution? Thank you for your help.

The only thing I can suggest is make the text larger Tools>Application Options>General tab Annotation Scale.
