Inventor ordinate jogged dimensions export to AutoCAD crossing each other

Issue:

When exporting an Inventor drawing to AutoCAD DWG, some ordinate dimensions with a jog export out crossing each other.

For example:

Cause:

This is being investigated for a cause and a fix in this Autodesk reference article: https://www.autodesk.com/support/technical/article/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/Not-all-jogged-ordinate-dimensions-are-not-exporting-to-AutoCAD-DWG-from-Inventor-without-crossing-jogs.html

Solution:

Temporarily moving the ordinate farther away from the drawing view before exporting to an AutoCAD DWG may help. 

Drag the dimensions to extend them, the export to AutoCAD might be closer to Inventor:

Exporting the file with DIMASSOC=0 may help as well but this will create exploded AutoCAD dimensions
