Is SolidWorks' positioning of arrows really smart?

How SolidWorks decides using Inside/Outside arrows for dimensions?


My Drawing templates are set to smart positioning of arrows.



But here's what SolidWorks decides to do.



I can't understand why SW use outside arrows for 40.0 (Vertical dimension). Is it really smart?

To show the difference on the same drawing with the same scale, I've added one more dimension and changed it to inside arrows manually.

To me, the inside arrows for this dimension (40.0) is much more elegant than outside.


Now my question:

Is there any option somewhere to control this positioning of arrows more logically? And tell SW I don't need so much space at both sides of the dimensions?



thank you.
