Automatic movement of the dimension value that falls on the dimension linesAbout files with the extension .mpifThe file with the .mpif extension is a special installation file of the ModPlus (ModPlus Install File).
These files allow you to install and update all ModPlus components using the auto-update module in case you do not have access to the internet or modplus.org
The application monitors all the created or edited dimensions and in case the dimensional text falls on dimensional lines, it moves the text aside!

When the plugin is started, the status control window opens.:
When checking the box Automatic displacement of dimension text on dimension creation tracking of all created dimensions is included, and if the dimension text falls on the dimension lines, the text will be moved to the side.
Attention! If you are working in Revit 2017-2020, then before running the "Reload Latest" command on the "Collaborate" tab, you must disable the plugin, as the offset of the dimension text will be applied to the dimensions obtained from the loaded changes!
When checking the box Automatic displacement of dimension text on dimension modify tracking of all dimensions existing in the document is included, and if editing a dimension (for example, adding new dimension lines) dimension text falls on dimension lines, the text will be moved to the side.
The direction of the offset relative to the dimension line - direction of text offset downwards or upwards relative to the dimensional line. The offset vector is defined relative to the dimension line vector, which in most cases is directed from left to right. If the dimension line vector is directed from right to left, the text will be offset in the opposite order.
If possible, move dimensional text down rather than to the side - if an offset is required for the text of a dimension chain segment and the offset can be performed towards the adjacent segment, then the text will be moved not only to the side, but also down:
The state of the plugin is remembered in the settings and the next time you start Revit, the automatic tracking of the dimensions created is turned on/off.
