Thank you for your help.
Never having used ordinate dimensions before, I can only guess the problem lies somewhere in your dimension style. Possibly the length of the tails, or bends ... or the text justification. Go to Manage, Styles Editor. Look first in Object Defualts, for Ordinate Dimensions. This will tell you the name of the dimension style that is set as your default. Next go to Dimension, find that style and play with the settings until it comes out looking the way you would like. Make sure to save any changes to the style.
I do not think this is possible. If you use Ordinate Dimension Set tool, they will maintain alignment with each other, but the alignment is to the leader end, not to the outer end. For the case that you show, placing the dimensions on the opposite side of the view will produce left-justified dimensions because the leader will be on the left end of the text, but this may not be desirable for this drawing.
