Linear Dimension with Different End Markers



I would like to be able to select a single Dimension and override its end markers so that it has different linear markers at each end. For example - a 'Slash' mark at one end and an 'Arrow' at the other.


Currently to do this (as pointed out by Andy Broomell) you have to ungroup a Dimension object (Convert to Group also works), which will result in individual lines and text objects. Then you could then select the line and change one of its markers.

I also have this request.  Has anyone found a way to change the dimensions tick marks?  Seems to be a pretty basic function for a drawing program to have...

You can change the tick marks by making a custom Dimension. I have one that gives "half" of what I need to indicate Joist/Beam direction. I have an old Wish for a way to make a full Joist Direction marker, BUT they have to be the same at both ends.
