Moving dimensions to the front group

Recommended Posts

Does any one know how to move the dimensions to the front in X8? I am dimensioning some beams in a crawl space that I moved to the front group and the dimension arrow is know hidden under the beam.

A couple ways to deal with that that come to mind:

 

1.  Remove the fill from the beam(s) or increase the transparancy.

 

2.  (What I think is probably the better solution).  Put the beam(s) back in the Default Group and then Move To Front Of Group (as opposed to just placing in the Front Group...2 different things).  For anyone who doesn't know how, there are 2 ways to do that...

I had them like that but was having a hard time with other layers showing on top. Seems strange that Chief wouldn't have a setting for one of the most important pieces of information in the plan (measurements) to be always on top or at least be able to move to the top.
