Often times I need to dimension a line, parcel boundary or whatever needs to show a distance.  Could a "new text dimension" tool be added to the draw toolbar for quick dimensioning?  This would save having to go through the painstaking task of creating a new dimension feature class!  Simple parameters for extension lines, dim lines, arrowheads and text is all that would be needed for control.  Then font, size, bold, italics, color, etc could be set using typical tools from the Drawing Toolbar.
