I have a dimension aligned to an edge, but for some reason it is forcing the dimension line thru the dimension. Not sure how to correct it. Went in to leader and tried all the options but nothing worked.
Can you post the file?
Try adding a few spaces before and after the <dim> in the properties.
Chris, I did that and it did nothing. What I did to finally fix it was instead of selecting the alignment line the dimension was taken from I selected one of the other parallel lines for alignment.
I had the same issue. I have had some luck by choosing the edge opposite of the dimension placement. Doesn't work every time, but I click around until I find something that works.
Original post continued........Here's the snip-it image of how I made the dimension work with a sketched tangent line for those that asked for an image.
I had the same issue & changed the "custom text position" to solid leader and the dimension text is now above & aligned with the dim. line.
This is a good solution, Just have to modify the custom text position of the dimension.
