Is there any way to change the tolerance on dimensions?  I noticed its at 1/32 tolerance, would like a more sensible construction tolerance of 1/16.

Also is there a way to throw on a fake dimension like on details?  On our details we refer to plan alot, like our footings we like to say "Size and Reinf Per Plan"  Is there a way to override a dimension or trick it?

You have to edit the dimension type properties to change the tolerance. Right now there is no way to change dimension text (sounds like that is changing in the 2009 release). I create a new dimension type and set the text size to the smalest possible (1/256"Winking so you get a dim string but the text is to small to plot. Then I put regular text in next to the dim line. It's not a great workaround, but it does work. If you search the formums you will find sever different posts on this topic, with several different solutions.

Although this is an old thread, I may have found something that helps with DIMENSION TOLERANCE. I was getting frustrated with the 243/256 measurements at 1/8" SCALE!!!

 right click dimension family-> element prop -> edit new -> units format -> rounding: (set to desired tolerance)

 

headache gone.

chateaubrianm,

 

That is bad advice.  Project units are best left at 1/256" so that you model accurately.  Change dimension types to whatever you want.  Obviously, that won't change the temporary dimensions but who cares?  If you want a rounded value, then use a rounded dimension then undo it.... just one extra key
