Custom Pipe Size Tag

By default, my pipe tag is something like the one attached. I would like to get rid of the "mm" (40 mmØ = 40Ø).

 

Any helpful tips will be much appreciated.

Open the Family for editing. Select the Label element and click "Edit..." beside "Label" under Properties. Remove the "Size" Parameter and add "Diameter" instead, because you can customize the format of "Diameter" to remove the units by selecting it on the right side and then clicking "Edit Parameter's Units Format" (the button with the hand and # sign). In the next dialog, uncheck "Use Project Settings" and set "Unit Symbol:" to "None" and Click 'OK'. Now add the "Ø" character to "Suffix" for Diameter and hit 'OK'. Load it back into your Project, and opt to overwrite the previous version.
