I am trying to link a Global Variable to a sketch text but i can't do it. 

The variable "Gear Thrust -T" = -945.627in

I am trying to link this value to a sketch text. 

But I do not know of a way to do this directly.  So i linked the above variable to custom property.  

So I created the property Thrust. and text type allowed me to select the "Gear Thrust - T" variable.  and you can see the estimated value shows the -945.627in. 

Then I created a sketch and selected sketch text. selected the custom property $PRP:"Thrust"

BUT it did not give me the value i was looking for it gave me the address.

 

Is there a different way? or is this not possible?
