How can I stack a dual dimension below the dimension line

I am trying to retain a dimensioning format that I use in autocad where a dual dimension is stacked below the dimension line. I have tried copying the format (using format painter) from an imported autocad drawing but it doesn't change the stacking format.

 

I intially thought that since the autocad drawing imports with the format that I want that this would be easy to copy over, however if I change anything inside the imported autocad dimension the format jumps back to the solidworks default stacking. The autocad dimension is the vertical and the formatted solidworks dimension is the horizonal:

 

Any idea how to do this?
