Layout mechanical drawings with dimension tolerances

It is typical when drawings parts to be made in metal to have dimensions with tolerances such as 1.585" +/- .001.
Is there another method other than manually adjusting the dimensions or adding a universal note to the drawings

Not sure what you mean by manually adjusting dimensions but short of adding the ±0.001 to either every dimension or as a general note (which I would prefer) is really the only option.

A key thing is to avoid conflicting dimensions.

I should have written editing the dimension texts. I am going to be using a general note and any dimensions that have important tolerances I will call them out.
