I have created a bunch of new shapes that we use on a regular basis that did not come loaded with Bentley CONNECT Edition. Once the shapes were created I noticed that a lot of the text and dimensions of the shapes are not visible on the diagrams because the text is on top of other text or not in the correct position that we would like to show it.
I found a way to position the letters in the bar shape management area. Is there a way to position the dimension lines or add more dimensions?
for example, in the photo that I have attached is it possible to move dimension line K1 up above the rebar lines? The text K1 moves but the dimension line does not follow.

I am getting error when I try to attach the file. The file is 1,705 KB.
The text position can be corrected by editing the Leg Properties.
Regarding your second query to adjust dimension, let me work on that. i will come back to you if there is any solution for that.
Thanks Sandip, yes I have found a way to position the text already.
We definitely need to change the position of the dimensions because it is difficult to read on some shapes.
I was just wondering if you found a solution for moving or adjusting the dimension. When I created new shapes that were not managed it created dimensions but it has placed them on top of other text and it is not legible. We cannot present these shapes in a partlist because they can not be clearly displayed.
Attached is a partlist that I have created with new shapes. As you can see the dimensions and text are not legible.
Some of the diagrams seem to be too small as well and can not fit the text.CONNECT Edition Partlist.pdf
