Can you make text parametric in Solidworks?

Hello all!

 

I currently use Fusion 360 which I like, but one major issue I have with it is that I can't make text parametric. I can constrain it and use variables, but the second I change the text to something else or adjust font it removes all dimensions and constraints. This seems like it should be a basic function that exists.

 

I have found I can do this just fine in OnShape, but OnShape is a bit limited on other functionality and only has a handful of fonts to choose from.

 

Does Solidworks allow you to dimension and constrain text so when I make adjustments to it it will keep the same constraints and dimensioning?

 

Hopefully this makes sense.

 

I would consider switching to Solidworks, but wanted to make sure that functionality is there.

 

Thanks!
