Is there an equivalent to the DIMFIT variable in this library? By default, the text on a linear dimension is positioned as in the attached screenshot. I'd like to be able to move it to the other side, preferably without having to use TextMiddlePoint.

Hi,

When the text doesn't fit inside the extension lines, it is positioned at extension line 2. So you can move the text to the other side by swapping ExtensionLine1StartPoint and ExtensionLine2StartPoint.

Thanks! That worked. Is there any variable I can check to see if the library has determined that the text doesn't fit?

No, there isn't.
