    Detail View With Foreshortened Dimension. Looking for your methods used!

      I'm redrawing this part in Solidworks.

       

      I am not coming up with a good way in Solidworks to show a dimension like the foreshortened Ø14" dimension in the "enlarged view" seen above.

      This is my progress...lol...I want my Ø19.94 dimension to look like the Ø14 dimension in the auto-cad screenshot. To where the dimension isn't shooting off the drawing border. I can hide the dimension and extension lines above the Ø19.94 text, but that still leave the line the dimension is going to out in the middle of nowhere. I keep getting a feeling I'm over looking a simple detail to something that's easy to accomplish.

      Any tips/tricks?

       

      I'm posting this because I'm curious to see what methods others use.

       

      Thanks in advance!
