Is there a way to update a symbol of one type, without the changes being applied to all symbols of that type in the drawing?
Example: If I have three Flag Note symbol's in my drawing from the same sketch symbol and the text reads 1, is there a way that I can change the text to read 2 in one of them without the other two flag notes updating as well?

Solved! by stephengibson76. See the answer in context.
do your flag note as a prompted entry, when you insert the symbol it will ask you for it or you can RMB on the symbol and edit it, each prompted entry can be different for the same symbol
Need as little more information. Are these symbols ones created in Autocad that you are importing into an Inventor drawing? Or are they revision symbols or balloons from parts lists?

Or if you like something that was said and it was helpful, Kudos are appreciated. Thanks!!!!
They were created in Inventor but are neither revision symbols or balloons from parts lists. It is being used for standard notes.
Thanks, I thought of that but I was really hopeing to be able to edit the symbol instead of having a flag note symbol for each.
You Rock!! That is exactly what I needed it to do.
