maybe i'm doing it wrong, but I wish there was a way you could automatically align & distribute already placed dimensions.
screenshot below of what happens when i try to distribute the 804 dimension to be equidistant between 697 & 894. AC doesn't allow it.
FYI, these red dimensions are placed as 'static' dims to see if the alignment / distribute action affects static or linked dimensions. i tried it just then with linked dimensions -- it still doesn't work & the error pops up.
Distribution of the dimension lines would be very nice indeed.
I am not really sure why it can't be done (there must be a reason though) as you can simply manually move any dimension line towards or away from what it is dimensioning without affecting any of the dimension settings or what it is associated to.

I would add, having the ability to place the dimensions to a known offset distance at the creation phase would also help e.g. offset from the first anchor point. It's a small thing, but as implied by @Gerry Leonor, sometimes presentation matters and consistent placement (& distribution) helps readability.

Current workflow for me is to drag copies of existing dimension strings around and use CTRL to add new nodes and delete those from the copied string that I do not need. It's decently fast, but it would help speed things up more. For some types / phases of drawing the annotation is all the work.
This along with being able to copy dimension lines from one story to another where the same elements exist on multiple stories (walls, grid elements etc).
These seem like simple things to add to the ussual list of small, boring but significant features of new releases.
