    1. Label it in Paper Space
    2. I use a macro to Toggle between UCS View & UCS World for adding Multileaders that should work, just don't forget to toggle it back.
    Code:
    ^C^C(if(zerop (getvar 'worlducs))(command-s "UCS" "World")(command-s "UCS" "View"))
    The modemacro set in my acaddoc.lsp displays UCS in the Status Bar as a warning when UCS isn't set to WCS.
    Code:
    (setvar 'MODEMACRO
        (strcat
             "$(If,$(Eq,$(Getvar,dbmod),0),,* )" 	;The asterisk indicates the drawing has been modified.
             "$(getvar,textstyle) "
             "$(rtos, $(*, $(getvar,cannoscalevalue), $(getvar,textsize)), 2, 2) "
             "$(if,$(getvar,worlducs),,$(if,$(getvar,viewdir),$(getvar,ucsname) ,Plan ))" ;Thanks Kent Cooper

    This TextHoriz.lsp works for block inserts, mtext, text & dimension text and should work on that dimension shown on your drawing.

    I've added the command to Object & Object Shortcut menus for Dimension, Mtext, Text & Block.
    90% of my editing is done from right-click Shortcut menus quick & easy.
