Moving radius text

Recommended Posts

In VW12 (I think) we use to be able to move the text on a radius dimension but now we can't (currently VW2014).

Can anyone tell me if they know of a way to move the text along the radius line since my center-line is not in the printing area and I still want to reference it by just shifting the text onto the page?

Or, (not so stupid)

Use the outside radius mode to draw the dim outside the curve, then Mirror it on the tangent at the insertion point. The text displays properly even if Document pref for Adjust Flipped Text is disabled.


•When moving the mirrored dim, it follows the virtual mirror of the curve.

•If curve changes radius, the mirrored dim is disconnected from the curve, and does not update value or follow to new position.
