Bent Notes with Escapement Zero

Question asked by Thomas Cleary on Feb 1, 2019

In SolidWorks 2017 the bend notes for a flat pattern sheet metal part always come into the drawing with the text parallel to the bend lines as shown below.

I would like the bend notes to always come into the drawing with zero escapement or angle no matter which way the bend line faces. This is shown below.

I have not found any setting that allows me to do this by default. If there is that would be the easiest and great! Or if I need to use a macro to turn them I am okay with that as well.
