External thread dimension

Is it possible to dimension external threads according to DIN/ISO 6410-1?

 

There is a way to insert callout, but it is not a proper way to dimension thread and in many cases it is not a clear way to dimension threads.

Now I have to insert dimension, then delete the diameter sign and insert M-letter. And if it's a fine thread, then I have to manually insert pitch.

And after all this, if the thread data is changed in the model, it is not updated automatically in the drawing (eg. different pitch).
