The user string replaces the calculated dimension value. You can revert to the calculated dimension value by setting the text to a NULL string (""). You can append or prepend text to the primary dimension value by using a closed set of brackets (<>) to represent the value. The primary dimension value will replace the brackets when the string is displayed. For example, TextString = "<> mm" will result in a displayed string of "3.5 mm" where the value of the dimension is 3.5. You can also include the secondary dimension value using square brackets ( [] ).
