Dimension position

Anonymous

Hello.
I am searching for the setting which determines the dimension text to automatically move outside the dimension space, once it gets bigger than the dimension space. Does anybody have a clue where it is? I am trying to deactivate it.
Thank you.

In AC20: Dimension Tool Settings > Dimension Details > Dimension Text Placement Method: Centered. Your signature indicates AC16, I don't know which version this was introduced.

Thank you very much for your answer.
Archicad 16 does not have this setting, nor does Archicad 18, as I found out. I don't know about Archicad 19.
But thank you again.

This feature is in AC19, so I guess that is when it was introduced.

Yes, this was a new feature in ARCHICAD 19.
There are two clips about the new Dimension Placement Methods introduced in AC19:
