I apologize if this has been answered before, but I looked through the forums and couldn't find the answer, so is there a way to layer the text of a dimension line, such as when noting a 3'-4" M.O. or 1'-4" TYP. spacing? I don't have room in some areas to leave it next to the number and would like to place it under that dimension line, but wasn't sure if this is possible. I know I can just add text under the dimension, but if there is another way that would make more sense, that would be preferred. Also is there a way to add a prefix or suffix to only certain areas of a dimension line that was created in one pass?

Don't know on the first, but I'm sure it could be done. No on your second question.

kasoper, i'm affraid it's no for the 2 questions... but you could just add the text and take the dimension number and text above the dimension line with a leader...

These guys are right, it can't be done. I manualy place text above or below dimension lines to reference dimensions to room names. It would be great if Revit could do this automatically once a room has a label you could then nominate your preference to display the room name with the dimension or not. Having these labels helps prevent builders pulling out rulers to find which dimension line references what on the plan. Before you know it, they get into the bad old habit of scaling off plans with their rulers and making errors, and then blaming the drafter. This is definitely one for this wish list. Here's an example plan in PDF...

Thank you to all of you. I will keep this in mind as we progress through our drawings.
