Making Slanted Dimension Extension Lines

To slant dimension extension lines:

When you insert or select a dimension, handles dim_handle_extension_attach.gif appear so you can drag the dimension to slant the extension lines. Drag a handle at the end of the extension line nearest the arrow (the pointer changes to pointer_Dim_Slant_Extension.gif when it is over a handle that effects the slant).
To return the dimension to its original position, right-click the dimension and select Display Options > Remove Slant. You can also drag the handle until the dimension snaps back to its original position.
