I'll add this to the Draft dimension

Added to Draft dimensions in r3700. There is now a "text override" property, that can be used to specify alternative text to display on the dimension. Any "<>" characters found in that text will be replaced by the dimension length, the same way as autocad.

Now I think what the original reporter wanted is to be able to edit/add the length of an edge directly in the sketcher, which is possible already:

- place a length constraint on a segment
- double-click on that constraint in the task panel
- edit the desired length
- move one of the points so the solver knows how to apply the new length

I'll close this feature request because it works already, feel free to reopen if something is wrong.
