flat pattern variables onto draft

Legend

In the past, I used a callout at the bottom of my sheet that gave the cut size of my sheetmetal part, using the variable table of my part for x and y cut size. I'm now having to put those dimensions into a small block of my draft, and the in (inches) from the formula are crowding out my text block. Yes, I can change the size of my font, but it's adding 6 spaces that are fairly valuable in this tight text box I have to use.

 

How are you showing your cut size on your prints, or do you know how to keep the inches from showing up in my draft and saving space?

I think you're asking the same thing I asked a couple of weeks ago. See this:

Adding the /NU to the formula doesn't take out the units, for some reason.

 

%{Flat_Pattern_Model_CutSizeX/NU|R1} X %{Flat_Pattern_Model_CutSizeY/NU|R1}

 

To clarify, I'm putting this formula in a text box in my draft template, if that matters.

Is this setting off?
