New system variable DIMTOFFSET

The DIMTOFFSET system variable is used to control the gap between the dimension line and the dimension text, if the space above the arrows is not enough for the dimension text when you place the dimension below or right the objects, the text is placed downward. 

When the value is set to 0: the gap between dimension text and dimension line keeps same.
When the value is set to 1: It becomes the same as AutoCAD.

Dimtoffset=1 VS Dimtoffset=0
