I would like to use the Dimension Feature tool in ArcGIS - this button as I want to have a label on every side of some polygons (they are all reasonably simple polygons).
When I click on my polygon to add the dimensions (and don't move or click the mouse again), they come up like this which is how I want them:

Am I missing an option somewhere? it does not allow me to select 'Dimension Feature' in the Construction tools section of the create features dialog. Its only available as a button (that I found by adding the button manually). The closest construction tool I can select is Dimension Edge, but that means I have to add dimensions for each edge of the polygon. Its a slower process.
