Ya know, that's not a bad answer, but, doesn't it bother you that there's still such a lot of hand labor (aka, jerking off) involved going through this patterned text and redifining the number text? Why not solve the problem before it starts, with something like a relation that references the pattern increment or index to change the number text. I don't know, maybe sketcher's the problem but you can do relations in sketcher, can't you? A variable that is placed in a file that's read into sketcher text? I don't know, seems like there ought to be something to get you out of editing all that crap.
