Offsetting Small Dimensions
SoftPlan Version:
2016 Plus

So I've turned off SoftPlan's tendency to automatically offset the small dimensions (Thanks for that tip, Bill).

 

I go to offset them myself, and when i try to add a pointer it freaks out about where it's attaching. Well, I don't really need the little arrow so I figure I'll just use an arc.

 

I put in an arc, and the small dimension snaps back onto the dimension line.

 

What's it trying to do? I can move the small dimension again, but it's kind of annoying. I guess I can draw the arrow first, but I end up having to tweak them in tight spots then. Is there a reason it would snap the dimension back when a line or arc is drawn nearby?

nevermind

Huh... nevermind. I figured it out. It's doing that "gonna move for the lines you put down so you can still read me" thing. Just weird that it'd put it back on the line instead of further away.
