Snapping Dimensions to Offset Distances

Good morning,

I'm working on automating some drawings via API. I have the drawing started, views imported, and annotations (dimensions) imported automatically. I'm now working on arranging the dimensions just how I want them. My issue is getting a consistent, baseline starting location for the dimensions. Under Document Properties -> Dimensions -> Offset Distances in my drawing template, I have the initial offset at 0.4 and subsequent offsets at .25. Unfortunately, my dimensions imported from my model aren't landing at these offsets. Once the dimensions are there and I manually select them and click Auto Arrange Dimensions, they still don't align to the offsets that are set in Options. What do I need to do to get my imported dimensions to automatically align to the default offsets?

 

Thanks in advance!
