Summary0003322: Wrong dimension placement with parallel inclined lines
DescriptionI 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.

Steps To Reproduce- Select two parallel lines which are not along the x- or y-axes.
- Click on the Length cotation.
- Observe that the cotation is not correct.

Expected results:
- The cotation should indicate the distance between the parallel lines.
- In any case should the value shown (number) correspond to what is indicated by the cotation (it seems that the value doesn't update if the cotation moves).

another issue around extension line orientation: TechDraw Forum.

Might be able to solve both at the same time.

If I understand this issue correctly(?): In using an Edge-Edge Length Dimension, the initial placement of the extension lines appears as a Point-Point Length Dimension across the diameter of the polygon. The Dimension text is the correct value for an Edge-Edge dimension, but one of the extension lines should use the other end of the Edge as it's start point.

If the Dimension text is dragged out of the Polygon, the appearance corrects itself.
