    Create a dimension style with a default text suffix

    Yet again, Revit has succeeded in confounding me when it comes to something that should be easy-peasy.

    What I want is to create a dimension style that will give me a dimension rounded to the nearest 10mm (that's easy), but I also want the style to apply a default suffix of COS (check/confirm on site).

    Any suggestions, other than applying the suffix once the dimensions have been placed ...

    You're out of luck unless you can make Alternate Units work for you. They allow prefix and suffix to be attached but not the main units display. Does it make sense? Not necessarily but that's just the way it goes...

    It the context of ludicrous constraints being imposed on the way that we are allowed to annotate our models ...
