[Routing] Showing Twisted pairs in a drawing

Hi all, I'm hoping someone has tried this and succeeded.  Using 2017 with the Routing package.

 

In a route, I have made a twisted pair (see Twisted pairs? | MySolidWorks for details, similar process) and that worked fine.  I am now working on making the drawing though, and there's no way to say "twisted with ___" or have the twists per inch (which you need to put in) show up.  I hope I'm missing something simple here, because having the data available in the model, and not being able to tap that information for the drawings seems like a bad design.

 

So far, while the routing package is much better than it used to be, the flatten route and drawing side of the package is still pretty raw.  If you have a 1:1 straight cable, great, things look amazing, but if you at all have an octopus, it may not be worth bothering yet.
