FS#1731 - Option to place text to other side

Hi Andrew,

It would be good to have an option to be able to place the text to the left or right,maybe just a simple check box? please see attached screenshot to explain. In this instance (and I have to do this a lot ;)) I had to explode the dimension entity and rearrange the text manually :(

Many thanks

Note that you can move the text label as follows:
- Select the dimension
- Drag and drop the text to another location by dragging the reference point at the center of the label

There's no need to explode a dimension to move its text label.

Hi Andrew,

Thank you for the useful advice, I will certainly do this from now on, however I still think it would be a useful option to have for laying out drawing dimensions as this option is certainly available in most all other cad programs.

Many thanks
