AutoCAD 2006 flip dimension arrows

AutoCAD 2006 introduced a new functionality related to dimensions. The command is aidimfliparrow and it lets you flip the direction of an arrowhead. This is sometimes useful as the image shows.

The command is available if you select a dimension and right-click on it. Make sure that you select the dimension on a point that is close to the arrowhead that you want to flip. Only one arrowhead at a time can be flipped.
Note that ADT 2006 doesn't have this command on the right-click menu.
A minor bug is related to this command. If the aidimfliparrow command is run from the command line it accepts multiple objects but it only works if you select one dimension object.
