Limit Dimension: in-line over/under option

We need better control over limit dimension display. 

 

Regardless of standard settings, the dimension dialog should allow the option to show limit dimensions in-line or over/under.

 

Currently, in ASME mode, diameter limit dimensions display over/under in section view and in-line in the circle's plane.  A user should have direct control of this display when choosing limit as a tolerance type.  This option should apply to all limit type dimensions on a case by case basis.  This is why the preference to control this in the dimension properties dialog is requested.  An overall default in the config.pro and config.dtl should also be added.

 

As it stands, I do not see any way to control this requirement except to annotate the dimension in a note.

 

 

There is also a bug in using diameter limit dimensions that place the diameter symbol in the wrong place when the dimension is use in a note.  This needs to be corrected.  Depending on the origin of the dimension (previously placed on the drawing), you get one of the two outcomes.  Neither is acceptable and require cumbersome editing before they can be used in this fashion since you cannot edit the dimension style directly from the note.

Using the diameter dimension directly from the drawing.  Top one from the circle's plane view and the bottom one from the cylinder's section.  Both dimensions are prefixed with the diameter symbol during feature generation.

 

Proper display required editing the dimension to remove the diameter symbol from the dimension prefix and adding the symbol back in the note.  Lots of mouse clicks!  Control over how the dimension is displayed too is extremely cumbersome.
