Is any option to add tolerances (or notes) to the sketch dimension?

    A dimension is not absolute and required to have tolerances.

    You can add tolerances in drawings only.

    The only way to add tolerance in a part studio sketch will be to add a comment in the dimension
    such as:
    2.0 in /* +/- .005 */

    anything in between these two marks: /* */ will be ignored by the sketch solver.
    Unfortunately they will not be parametric to a drawing... 


    And there is no way of seeing the comment until you attempt to edit the dimension (see above image)


    This is what it looks like in drawings:

    John,

    Unfortunately this “NOTE” /*tolerances*/ will be visible only if you double-click on dimension and disappears when dimension is not active.

    This time is wasted.

    Thank you.

    I did mention that in my original post.  Sorry those are your options.

    There are some improvement requests for this somewhere. You should add your vote
