    1. In the drawing area, select the dimension you want to edit.
    2. Double click on the dimension value. The Dimension Text dialog displays.
    3. In the Dimension Value field, select Use Actual Value.
    4. Enter the text you want to display in the Above, Below, Prefix and/or Suffix text fields.
       Note:You do not need to enter text in all fields, only those you require.
    5. Click OK.

    Tip: Alternatively, you can select ‘replace with text’ instead of ‘actual value’ in the dimension text dialog box. This will replace the dimension value with a text note you write.
