I have had the same problem until I came across this video from a youtuber and I did not come across the information in the forum.

 

Cheers everyone!

I've tried that, The sub panel that I was drafting for a customer is what is known as a shotgun pattern.  Many holes and little places in between them.  Such as the picture.  I have dims on both sides showing where each hole is for out QC shop.

If I am not mistaken it should be located in the dimension ribbon, under Automatic coordinate dimension.

Me neither. And I still don't see any auto-jog. Is this a ST10 thing anyone?

It might be.  I still use ST9, ST10 is still pretty new.

It's part of the Coordinate ribbon bar.

I do my own dim jogs anyway, so have not used this.....
