Every now and then, you’ll need to dimension a small gap or a small part of an object in which dimension text won’t fit. The Fit tab includes a few settings (other than the ones you’ve already worked with) that control how dimensions act when the extension lines are too close.
The Text Placement group contains three options to place the text in tight situations:
Beside The Dimension Line Places text next to the extension line but close to the dimension line. You’ll see how this affects your dimension later.
Over Dimension Line, With Leader Places the dimension text farther from the dimension line and includes an arrow or a leader from the dimension line to the text.
Over Dimension Line, Without Leader Does the same as the previous setting, but doesn’t include the leader.
The options in the Fit Options group let you control how text and arrows are placed when there isn’t enough room for both between the extension lines.
