    similar to this (I hope it posts well). If you have a tappered cutout and
    the angle is very small, I need to detail the bottom (narrowest) part. If i
    do this with a normal dimension the extension lines cover the object lines
    and it makes it look like they are pointing to the top of the angle. Is
    this possible without haveing to draw little lines, dimension and then
    override the dim text.

    click on the dimension, and drag the #'s where you want them
    there will be green dots on the ends of the witness lines
    click on dot, and drag the end of the witness line to where you want it

    Thanks for your input but that dosent work. All it does is move the witness
    line attachment along the axis of the line. I want it to be bent like I
    drew in the diagram. Do you know wjat I mean?
    Thank you
