Hole callout with respect to a virtual sharp in drawing view.

I was trying to see if there was something either in a guide or a forum post to the answer to this question, but I couldn't find anything with regards to the keywords in the title. 

I understand that you could use the centerline reference to locate the holes just as effectively, and maybe this is poor practice, but I wanted it to be with respect to a virtual sharp as there would be a corner there to reference for the holes up until the chamfer is made and I'd like to reflect that in case the manufacturer needs a drawing that is a bit simpler just so that I can reduce the amount of time / hours said manufacturer needs to make allowance for the hole location. I have attached a picture exemplifying the issue and ideally I'd like the coordinate system origin on the sharp, not the corner that it currently is selecting. 

Thank you.

    @Jatomis If you pick a reference X edge and the reference Y edge in the dialog -  we will locate the origin at the virtual intersection of that.  You don't need to create a virtual sharp first.
