Show date and text on one line with two colors

Question:     

I want to show the date on a symbol along with some text in a different color.  It should show the date along with the stage of the project.  For example:  3/20/2017 - (Stage 4).  I'm trying to do this as a symbol note.  It seems I can only change the color for each line of text though.  Any ideas?

 

Answer:

You are right that symbol notes only have line-by-line color overrides.

Here's one way to do it:

  1. For the symbols' date properties choose Above and Center.
  2. Add a symbol note with the following:  (Stage 4).  Set the font and font size for the note to match the font and font size for symbol text.  
  3. Position the note as shown:
