I would like to see a feature added to the dimension tool in SU Pro.
We dimension inside SU because it provides a finer level of detail than Layout.
The extension lines that connect a dimension to an object often overlay other objects making the view confusing. This could be resolved with an option to shorten the extension lines so they look something like |-------- 36" --------| yet stay connected to the object so that changes are updated when the object is resized.
Such an option could be included in the Model Info/Dimensions Dialog with a checkbox and text along the lines of “Extend dimension lines to object.” “On” connects the lines visibly to the object, like it does now. “Off” shortens the lines yet remains connected to the object invisibly.
