Add parentheses to dimensions via design table

Question asked by Roy Dean on Jul 30, 2020

I have a part file with many configurations of parts that are all "made from" another part (ie, we take a part and machine it to one match one drawing, then it goes to another process that forms the already machined part).   So the drawing for the second process should have reference dimensions for the features that were added in the previous operation.

 

I can step through all the configs and click the "(XX)" button for all those dimensions (2019 SOLIDWORKS Help - Using Parentheses on Particular Dimensions ), but that takes a long time.  Since these dimensions are already controlled by the design table, is there a way to add the parentheses via the design table?
