Formatting associative dimensions in custom properties or BOM.

Question asked by Ken Mantle on Jul 6, 2012

Is there a way to change how SolidWorks formats dimensions associated through custom properties?  For example, right now associated dimensions show up as 3 1/4 X 2 1/4, but I want them to show up as 3-1/4 X 2-1/4.  I've tried changing how dimensions are shown in the drawings and parts to my desired format, but to no avail.  There seems to be no way to change the default display of dimensions associated under custom properties.  If there was a way of doing this in the BOM that might work too, but the property would still have to be stored in the custom properties.
