Another method is to use "Override value" option.
Check this option and can write any text or value.
When this option is unchecked the original value is used on dimension.

Another great method indeed, Nucu. Thanks for posting this. You're referring to the "Override value" checkbox in the "Primary Value" field of the Property Manager, just above the section magnified in the graphic above. And, if one explores the "Other" tab, we find we can also override the dimension units. Hmm, perhaps a topic for another blog post... Thanks again!
