Oh, if you have an Inventor question, you should be posting specifically in the Inventor forums :smileyhappy:

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:

Took me awhile to find the solution, but it works.

  1. Change dimtxtdirection to ON
  2. Change text placement vertical to BELOW
  3. Do a dimupdate

DIMEDIT can be used to rotate the text.

Very easy, no nead to redo anything
