ANNO: tangential option for coordinate dimensions using external basepoint

ANNO: tangential option for coordinate dimensions using external basepoint

Please add "tangential" option to coordinate dimension command. This would be really helpful in such

cases as shown below on screenshot, e.g. when you use the coordinate dimension with external basepoint

to dimension some details in "Detail" views. But when the base point refer to a calculated arc, so it's not

possible to catch the angular point. In such cases you have to create a manual 2D point as workaround,

but these 2D points are not associative to the 3D model when you do some changes on model an you have

to update Anootation views.

An other workaround.

You can split the geometry.

Once a dimension is placed at this verticle it will stay at the right place if you update the drawing.

You are right, you can split the geometry, but in some cases after update the geometry has lost the split points and the dimension get red.
