add balloon text into drawing note

Is there a way to include a callout balloon in the text of a note?  This would be sincerely great but I have not found a way to do this.

    As far as I know, no. It’s definitely one of those basic things which is missing. There’s also no way to add a GTol into a note (e.g. an overall profile tolerance). For now, I think the best one can do is leave a space and add a ballon callout without an attachment or whatever and paste it on top of the note.

    We have not yet delivered on inserting non associative annotations into notes OR inserting associative annotations into notes.  Both are needed, in addition to flag notes.  All are known to us and are planned improvements.

    @doug_Ocampo No, this has not been resolved.  We have yet to deliver on the functions I mentioned.
