I have a part with holes made from Cut-revolve feature.  In the drawing, the hole table automaticly picks these up.  I want to edit the text in the Size column of the hole table.  Specifically, I want to completely remove the existing size information and put in my own.  When I do this, I get an message warning me that I'm about to break the link between the model and the call-out,  I press 'yes', wanting to continue.


The problem is that Solidworks reinserts some of the unwanted Edit hole table dimension text error.jpghole size infomation, after I have deleted it.  In the image, row A2 shows the original text.  Row A1 show what happened when I completed delete the text in the Dimension Text box and type in my own text 'SAE J1926/1 Port, 9/16-18 Thread Size'.  I don't want the first line showing the diameter and depth info.


Thanks, Jeff
