Override diameter prefix in dimension??

I have a Inside diameter that I would prefer to have I.D. 5.60 ±0.05 instead of Ø 5.60 ±0.05. I don't see a way to remove Ø symbol in a dimension.

I don't want to use a note as I can't make the tolerance text smaller.

See atached picture, red block is normal dimension, green block is note.

 

Thanks,

Hi @Gary_Dinges,

 

You can edit the properties of the dimension [create & save to a style, if you wish to continue using this].....see the "Terminator and Symbol" tab, there is a check box for "Diameter" & "Symmetric Diameter" suppression. Then just use the "Prefix" to add the "I.D." string.
