Description

Hi, Simple request, would you be able to put in an option on the scalebar menu so that the text can be put underneath the scalebar? By this I am referring to the ticks middle and ticks down options.
Frequently I deal with offshore mapping which requires a scalebar in nautical miles and also metres and I often have to make the map in ArcGIS because there is no tidy way of adding 2 scalebars appropriately. The common method in other software is to have a "ticks up" and a "ticks down" with the text above and below.

Also useful for most maps of the USA, since the standard is to include scalebars in both KM and miles.
