I am using SolidWorks 2016 and have this issue: When using ordinate dimensioning to locate the centers of several tangent fillets, it produces large gaps between the center marks, which I place on the drawing view first, and the ordinate dimension lines. (see image 1). I believe this gap is where the extended lines of the center marks would be if the option to turn them on were selected.
unless I manually tug each leader line away from the center mark, which doesn't strike me as particularly efficient. I tried reducing the extension lines gap setting which produced only a tiny improvement. I went to Options>Dimensions>Centerlines/Center Marks, selected Extended lines and reduced the gap there which had no impact at all. I did a Ctrl + Q Forced (Total) rebuild which also had no impact.
Is there a way to reduce the leader line to center mark gap in an efficient manner to get a normal appearance similar to the 4.80 and 7.50 dimensions in image 2 which I manually adjusted? Thank you.
