Locking dimension alignment

Question asked by Alan Thomason on Sep 29, 2016

I have a part which configures to different lengths, but otherwise has many similarities.  I would like to use the same drawing file and change configurations for each of the four parts.  Unfortunately, because the length changes, the dimensions end up in an unpleasing position.  The shots below are the result of changing the length through configuration.  It is amazing how much of the drawing does adjust happily but for these items I can't figure out what to do.  Is there a way to make the position of the dimensioning relative to someithing on the part itself?  Like an underlying sketch which doesn't print but which can pin parts of the dimensions in place?  Thanks in advance.
