# Draging angle dimension text out of the arc of the dimension lines

Experimenter

I just ran into a problem while trying to drag the angle dimension text out of the arc of the dimension lines.  I was able to do this on previous versions of SE where to move the acr of the dimension lines you had to actually click on one of the dimension lines, if the text was picked you could drag off the text out of the arc of the dimension lines, SE would then join the dimension lines into a continuous arc and add a leader line to the dimension text. Now, if either text or dimension lines are picked the dimension text is embeded in the arc and will not pull out without dragging the arc of the dimension lines along. Does anyone know of a solution for this?

Thanks,

Cho

Hold down the ALT key when dragging the text.
