Is there a way to insert a dimension line break to keep drawings tidy? 

The red line in the attached image is where I would like a break.

Thanks in advance.

    I try to not make them overlap by removing the leader between the arrows and moving the 1.5 dim further down. You are absolutely right it should be able to do it - please create an improvement request in the category on the right —->
