How are counterbore and countersink symbols inserted into text on dimensions in AutoCADLT 2009? Also, why is it when I type "counterbore symbol" into the help box are there no results found? I know I've done this before. Thanks in advance.

LT is a CAD program made for everyone, and no one specific. General CAD for
the general use of cad drafters from everywhere. You won't find references
for Doors, PCB plates, Sewers, chairs, sockets, shingles, plants, and so on
either.

HELP will never show industry specific queries, if you want that you need to
purchase an AutoCAD version that is specifically made for your needs.

While in MTEXT, right-click, select SYMBOL, see what the program only
offers, if you cannot find yours click on OTHER and explore what your PC has
to offer for text symbols you can use. You may have to purchase or acquire
additional symbol fonts files to install in Windows for what you seek.

I see how to do it with the multiline text editor. But how is this string put into the text override field of the dimension so it is part of the dimension and not multiline text below the dimension. Thanks again.

DDEDIT command also works with Dimtext, opens in the Mtext edit, you will
need to manually add it.

Any other option and you need to share what font file you found your symbol
in.
