Can anyone help me please!

 Our company standard when dimensioning plans is to represent the room name in the dimension string (i.e. "3500 Bed 2"Winking. To this point in time we have been able to do this within "Element Properties" under the text category "Suffix".

Now that we have installed Revit Architecture 2009 I've noticed this option is now unavailable. Does anybody know if this can still be done without the tedious job of doing it in text alongside the dimension??? (this is very time consuming and does not centre correctly).

Any help would be greatly appreciated................. can't understand why Autodesk would remove features from their product.

Many thanks.

HI!  ...if you select the dimension string and then select the dimension where you want the text to appear, a dialog box with options for adding text will pop-up...that's how we've been doing it...
