Is it possible to override PMI dimension with text?

No. Unlike Drafting dimensions, you cannot create a manual text dimension in PMI. That's by design.

You are asking to override text for PMI dimension in Modeling or Drafting application ?

 

In drafting you can do it as to the normal dimensions from settings ( Text > Format > Override Dimension Text).

As per comment from @DEckhoff, you can not do that in modeling. Smiley Indifferent

Why would you want to do that?

 

Overiding dimensions is generally a Pandora's box.  I suspect you're trying to convey some other information using a dimension - what is it?

 I have to override PMI,  and name it as length, height and width as general dimensions for one of the interfaces. How can I do that?

Actually text override option is not there in PMI . What we used to do is
will add the text we need to override as appended text and make the height
of dimension very small like 0.0001 or something. So the dimension will not
be visible .
