    If there is a better way I'm all ears (need a new emoticon for that huh?)...but I add a suffix of +/- to the dimensions via the properties dialog.

    Alek,

    Select on a dimesnion and go to the properties of the dimension there is a Prefix / Suffix instance parameter.

    If there is more than one dimension in the string then the Prefix / Suffix value is set to the entire string (i don't know if we can control this). If only one of the dimensions within the string needs a plus / minus use text or a symbol etc.

    You can add a prefix that is text: +/-

    seems to work....its not the stacked plus-minus but......

    If you use your character map you can get the stacked ± into your dim prefix. The short cut code is alt+0177. I believe that is the standard for all fonts that offer extended characters.
