Multiple dimensions from a zero point

pScout
  I am doing a large plan (basically a rectangle) with several dozen features along the edges.  To dimension each of those features from one edge (zero point) would require several dozen stacked dimension lines.  I want to show just the extension line to the feature and the end arrow with the dimension as in the example below.
 |<--       25-->|      43-->|   76-->|     125-->| etc.

  Is there a way of doing this?  Can the dimension value be moved right up to the end of the dimension line and the portion of the dimension line to the left of the value be deleted or hidden.  That way the dimensions can be positioned in a row along the edge.   I'd hate to have to make all of these using leader lines, hand drawn extension lines, and hand entered values.  I need this both horizontally and vertically, but aligned might also be useful.

  If not already a dimension option it seems like it might be an easy to add.  Unfortunately I'm not a coder.
