Highlight the ones you want to change, then RMB, Display Options, Re-jog Ordinate. Is that what you are talking about?
I tried that but it did not do anything.
There is no setting under the ordinate dimensions in tools>options>document properties.
The only thing I would suggest is see if any of the dimension spacing settings work in the
same area of tools>options.
Besides what Wayne suggested you might be stuck my friend.
Sometimes it is easier to simply use the arrow keys to move (nudge) the dimensions out of alignment instead of using the Jog tool ... or in combination.
NOTE: The Break Alignment tool has to be used first.
