Wrong dimension placement with parallel inclined lines

Postby galou_breizh » Fri Jan 19, 2018 7:21 am

I wanted to cote two parallel lines which are not along the x or y directions with the "Length" cotation. The value of the cotation is correct but its default position is wrong, so
that the shown cotation doesn't correspond to the shown value. A workaround is to move the text until the cotation is correct.

Workaround, move the cotation text:

I'll report the issue if anyone confirms this.

Yes, the extension line positions are misleading. It looks like a diagonal dimension at first. PLease make a ticket.
