Is there a way to select multiple text strings, & globally "custom/edit" to have measured value plus add the "+/-" suffix. I do a lot of as-built work, & sometimes need to show +/- dims. It is a major pain to have to edit each string/text one at a time. Thanks in advance!

Select all the dimensions,
then double click on the text tool (sic!).

A screen will open where you can type in what you need. :)
Have a great weekend, Billy!

Same technique applies to editing the fill area text for Fills.

Similarly you can select a variety of elements of simply double click the tool of the type whose settings you want to edit. Makes for easier selecting!

Cheers,
