APPEND TO COGO POINT DESCRIPTION

I have a couple hundred cogo points with all different descriptions. is there a way to add "use these" to the beginning of all the nodes at once?

Yes. Select the points, or have a Point Group with them in it, Edit the points, select all in the Panorama, right-click the header for Description Format, select Edit, place this in the edit box:

use these - $*

hit enter. All of the Full descriptions will then have the "use these -" plus the raw description. Now, if you already use the Full description modifiers, then you might need to go about it a bit differently. i.e. programatically.
