Is there a way to override or select a different Text Display for some openings (at the opening symbol level) than the one set in the system options so that I don't have to edit it everytime. I have Opening Size & Opening ID selected for interior openings and Rough Opening Size & Opening ID for exterior openings which is fine for most doors and windows but no so for some arches and niches where I don't want anything to display (but there is also my shower doors that I don't want anything displayed).


In the 1rst example, for a basement with knee walls on the exterior, I draw a separate wall for the interior wall. I don't want the opening size or ID to appear for the arch at the window in the interior wall. In the 2nd example, I have a niche at the electrical panel so that the insulation doesn't cover my electrical panel symbol. Again I don't want the size and ID to display. Also, I don't want an Opening ID to be assigned to these. It screws up the order of the Opening ID"s and causes conflicts with the ID numbers that I need for other openings that I want to keep a certain order.

That would be a nice feature to have.
