Sorry this is not of any help. I would like to do the same thing but cannot find a solution.

 

I have responded in the hope that this will help to highlight the fact that there are lots of users that require a solution to this problem.

 

I am currently sketching a jogged line on a drawing view, then using a standard dimension from the sketched line. This is a poor solution as the dimension value has to be manually updated to the correct figure. I have tried to link to a user parameter in the model but cannot set it up so that it will always update depending on the iPart factory member that is active in that particular drawing view.

 

I hope this gets resolved soon, I would use a jog feature on every drawing that I produce.

The only thing I can think to do as there is a lack of feature is to sketch a jog, then dimension to this and make a false dimension.  Not ideal but will get the job done.
