Why do perspective views still not allow snapping notes to geometry accurately?

I like to use perspective views in my drawings when creating instructions it makes it easier to understand however perspective drawings have long suffered from the actual geometry not lining up with the shaded view of it so you cant snap notes or ballons to the parts.

This causes me great trouble since if a model changes size the notes and balloons move meaning you have to reposition them, also if you use the part properies you have to stab in the dark to link the note to the correct geometry to be able to pull the model properties into the note, and most of the time the leader is on another part in the shaded view or floating in space with nothing under it.

This drives me crazy to the point I very rarely use perspective views in my drawings other than for a visual only view.


Is there is a way to snap accurately to perspective views in drawings? or are perspective views just broken.
