dimension alignment "on the fly"

One thing drives me crazy, because I just don't remember how to set it up in AutoCAD Mechanical 2013. Here it is: one single separate dimension is already on the drawing, later I want to put another single dimension somewhere else in the same direction and align it's position with previous one using snap on to text position feature. I know there's dimension alignment tool to do such thing after the fact, but how to do it during the placement of dimension?

You mention AutoCAD Mechanical 2013.  This is the Inventor forum.  Is your question about Inventor, or did you mean to post your question in the AutoCAD forum?

If y chance you are talking about aligning these dimensions in Inventor, just ctrl tag both of them and then RC and select "Align Dimension".

I'm sorry, indeed this is not Inventor's issue.
