Override Dimension with Text

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to override a dimension with text?  I see where you can add to the suffix or prefix, but I don't want any numbers and I'd prefer not to draw the dimension lines and architectural ticks manually.  Thanks.

Reduce text size to at or near zero and then add text manually is typically the quickest and easiest way.

You can also use a single segment polyline with arrows on both ends and then enter the desired text in the label.

I use rich text and then add an line with an arrow on both ends.  Works great for calling out joist/rafter sizes.

Same here, and you have control over each element.
