Is there a way to use a model dimension in a note or to put it into different dimension? Say you have two hole features on the same axis and want the callout to be something like this:

OR, like the model I am currently working on with a bunch of hydraulic port fittings (SAE J1926) that are made from library features. I don't want to dimension the full port, but I do want to dimension where I've modified the spec, for instance if I want the tap drill to extend further than strictly needed for the threads in order to make connections between ports.

 

Is there some "coding" that would allow the actual dimension to be utilized? The alternative seems to be to just type the text in, in which case it will not change if the model changes...

thanks...
