Automatic dimension line breaking

Automatic dimension line breaking

When dimension lines overlap, it would be nice if the lines would automatically break to save a lot of manually breaking dimension lines. This seems like similar functionality to hatching breaking around text.BreakDimensionLines.jpg

In 4.0 m130, breaks have to be created manually but some parametric ability is allowed for breaking around other witness lines and snap lines, so that the break follows the movements of the references, but there is no option to use a dimension arrow as the break reference.  This requires the use of snap lines if one wants to have a parametric break around arrow lines.  The arrow line should be a reference option for a parametric break.
