Is there a technique/work-around for solving dimensioning/layout conditions where grid bubbles overlap?  I've tried selecting the offending bubble and dragging it up or down the screen but the bubbles seemed to be locked in place.  Alternately, an option to horizontally "break" the alignment line and slide the grid bubble laterally with the dimensions maintaining their actual values would work fine also.


Thank you.

It's a frustrating tool :-).


You are correct, there is no way to adjust the shoulder of the grid bubbles.  The best way I've found to handle it is to break up the gird objects into multiple objects. Set the new grid objects to not show the first bubble and to start with the last number of the last grid.


It's confusing.  I'll attach an example.
