In the days of hand drafting, I used to be able to use leaders that indicated that the dimension was at a certain point on the part. See my sketch. Is there any way to do this in Solidworks?
Right click on the Extension lines -> Display Options -> Jog. Then drag the Jog Handles where you need 'em....
Right click on extension line and set the display to jog. Adjust as needed
Thanks guys. Not exactly what I want, since it leaves a little piece at the end.
I'm not on my SW computer but you can adjust the gap from the leader to the part. It's in the settings prolly under dimensioning/leaders.
But to be honest I don't understand why you'd want angled leaders pointing at straight walls. The bend which is parallel to the line at the end ensures me that the leader is in fact pointing at that and not some funky angle related to those radii.

Unfortunately that setting is global and gap would change for each dimension on that drawing.
