Slanted dimension leaders?


New member

I want to draw a dimension between two points where one is above and to the left of the other.

When I try the usual way, the dimension can only be positioned with either vertical or horizontal leaders. I want to dimension the shortest distance, so the leaders should be slanted at an angle.

I can make this happen by using construct lines and perpendicular constraints and stuff like that, but reasonably there should be a simpler way?

Start the dimension command,pick your two points, right-
click select "Aligned".
