Can you Auto Balloon parts from BOM on assembly 2D?

I am making assembly drawings and was wondering if there is a way to auto balloon out parts from the BOM. I have the views on the page and the bom but need to have the parts labeled via the bom and don't now if its only possible manually.

    This is fine here @Mazie_Houchens.  As a pro user, your most direct line is the contact support in the help menu in the product - but we watch here and file tickets for Pro users when we see them.  For anyone else following along, automatic balloons are not possible yet in Onshape drawings - but something we plan to deliver on.

    @Scott_Morris you're right, this has not been implemented. Looks like the support ticket attached to the IR was closed when it shouldn't have been, although a number of other tickets have been opened by Pro users. Could you please create a new IR for free plan users to vote on? Interesting that nobody has flagged this before now?
