Numbers or letters inside symbols


I need to have numbers inside my triangle symbols.  Right now I am using symbol text and the text is pretty small and hard to re-size when the symbol sizes change.  Is there an easier way to do this?



Symbol letter marks were designed just for this purpose and offer the best way to get a single digit (number letter or other character) as part of a symbol.  This is set up in the toolbox and can be a concise way of building a milestone schedule.



Double-click any symbol in the toolbox.

Enter a letter for the Letter Marking:


If necessary, click the Text/Date Properties tab and adjust the Marking Letter vertical position (Upper, Middle Lower).


Adjust the font size for all symbol marking letters globally by choosing Symbol Mark in the Default Text section of the Format tab.
