Dimension Projection Line Breaks

Often when placing dimensions on drawings, the projection lines of some dimensions will cross the projection lines of other dimensions as shown below.

Solid Edge provides a function to automatically create breaks in one extension line where it crosses another. This function is called "Add Projection Line Break". It is accessible from the Shortcut Menu when you have a dimension highlighted.

The result is shown below.

If you wish to remove the projection line break, highlight the dimension, invoke the shortcut menu, and select "Remove Projection Line Break".

The context menu no doubt stores a treasure trove of options but designers are in such a hurry to finish off the work at hand.

I'd suggest making the context menu options available on the Command Bar as well which will definitely help unearth them and find greater use.
