    Is it possible to add a label to a detail component (example: 2X4 wood side view) that changes depending on the length of the stud. So if my detail component was 4 feet long, my label in the family would read as 4 feet?

    Yes, nest a generic annotation with a label in your detail item and link the parameters from the label to the ones from you detail item.
    Small example is attached

    Okay one more question for you, I typically use a tolerance of up to 1/16", this label seems to want to read up to the 1/32". I change the settings in the label, load it back into the family and overwrite the parameters and it works fine, but when I load and overwrite back into the project, it goes back to a 1/32". Any suggestions?

    EDIT: Per usual I find my answer a minute after I ask the question, just had to load the family all over again and it seems to work
