Changing dimension value

Is there a way for me to remove or modify the value associated with a dimension? 

For example, if I dimension the wheelbase, I'd like to keep the lines but replace the number with the word "wheelbase".  I assume I can make a note nearby, but cannot figure out how to remove the value without loosing the lines.

Symbolic dimensions

Showing dimensions in symbolic form instead of in numeric form is described at the 2:14 minute mark of the video tutorial at: bikecad.ca/dimensions_dialog.

If you'd like to assign a different symbolic value to a dimension ("A" instead of "Effective top tube length") what I would propose is that you make a series of user dimensions described at: bikecad.ca/user_dimensions. For each user dimension, you can assign a name. This name is what will show up on the screen when you switch from numeric dimensions to symbolic dimensions.
