Can we get the drawing environment to automatically (or a choice at least) break dimension lines not just when it passes through text, but also when it crosses another dimension line
Also agree. This has been possible in AutoCAD since R2008 and has also appeared ion the Inventor Wish List. Needed ASAP!
I'd say give us the option for either / or / both with regards to the dim line or extension line.
Automatic breaking (as a dimension style option) and also manual for one off's
Wow! One of the first rules of drafting is NEVER have an extension line crossing a dimension line. If you follow the rules of good drafting practices you would not be asking for this option.
Auotdesk's guys should know better then do this kind of stuff. It really bothers me that the people creating the software do not actually know what it needs to do.
Yes, I am aware of the drafing standards. I've used two of them commercially for >30 years. However, simply because a standard exists shouldn't negate the fact that some users may have the need to modify their intellectual property as they see fit to accomodate their needs.
They may not be following any given standard, but they can still convey their design and manufacturing intent.
