[solved] Is there a better way to do this?

Hi Forum:

I was wondering if there's a better way to use the dimension tool so that I don't get these extended lines.

Without dimensioning:

Not in the current version.

But you can fix that manually. Select the DIM and drag the Extension line back with help of the blue points ...
