make a text symbol?

Not applicable
This started as me trying to make labels for my gridlines, stating what they were measuring. I wanted it to be a symbol so it would show up on every plan and if it changed, I wouldn't have to go through and change it on every plan. Basically so it would function like the gridline symbol. Is there a way to convert some text so that it shows up on every floor but is still editable?

Currently, Text (as well as other 2D entities) doesn't have the ability to be viewed on multiple Stories. You will need to use an Object with a text parameter.
