Changes to Radial Dimension Tool

Question

- Allow the arrowheads to match all custom arrowheads in document (Right now they are fat and chunky

- Allow this Dimension tool to work like other Dimension tools; ie. change the style after creation (from outside to inside, Diameter to Radius etc.)

- Make the leader line more flexible & editable once created

You can change the arrowhead type now by editing the "Other Markers" marker type when editing a Dimension Style. There really should be a "By Class" option and some consistency with how markers are chosen across VW (Callouts have a similar issue where there's no default to "By Class").

This would be fantastic.

It drives me crazy that I can't move the dimension text to a custom location like you can with other dimensions. This is specifically a problem with "internal" dimensions where the text is fixed at the centre of the radial or diametrical line.
