    Default Need to subtract a value from all numbers on a topographical height

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi there,

    I have a topographical survey and the heights are all incorrect to mean sea level, so I need to subtract 90 from all the numbers. The numbers are all text, not dimensions. Is there a quick way to select all the text (all on same layer) and batch subtract 90 from all? There's about 500 values so I didn't want to do this manually.
