Can anyone tell me if there is a setting I missed to make the ordinate "0" in the shown image with the red arrow look like the ordinate "0" with the green arrow? I want the lines to break automatically...?
No, there isn't a setting that will do that automatically. Maybe some day, but not currently, and there have been a number of discussions here on the subject (Re: How important it is to you to have SOLIDWORKS expand its current functionality to break extension lines about more drawing elements is one of them).
You'll need to break that extension line of the 80 dimension manually.
I guess they are spending their time and money ruining the UI.
