I have programs that at some point or another create dimensions for what was drawn. There is an issue I'm hoping someone can help me with though. When you have a vertical dimension that doesn't fit between the extension lines, it will either go up and to the right or down and to the left.
I can change it manually by selecting the dimension and then right click and pick Dim Text position > Move with leader.
What I want to know is, is there a way to set the vertical dimension where you want it programatically? I would like to put the vertical dimension down and to the right of the arrows if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
under 'autocad 2011 help' - system variables - section d you find a long list of the system variables associated with dimensions together with a short description, eg DIMATFIT, DIMTMOVE, DIMTOH etc:
these, i'd think all or most of them, are analogously properties of the dimension object so they can be looked up in the object explorer.
hope this is of help
