Choose smart dimension, click on the first object, then click on the second object then press and hold shift, you will see the dimension will change from vertical/horizontal to aligned. Kind Regards

Extra note: You can also put the two items on a circle (with the radius set to the distance you want them apart), and put the circle on the Auto hide layer so its not shown in your sheets.

You can also use the Distance Between dimension type.
There is a combo box when you run this command where you set the alignment.
Change it from 'Horizontal/Vertical' to 'By 2 Points'.
