Manually entering instance count without breaking dimension text

I'm trying to use the hole callout tool to dimension some slots. I created one slot using a sketch+extrude cut, then did a linear pattern to create a second slot. The dimensions on the slot come in fine but I can't add a (2X) indicator without breaking the link to the feature (in different configurations the slot width is different).

 

This is one try (I added the dimension using the 5.51 width configuration and then switched to a 6.5 configuration). If I manually add (2X) to the end then the link is fine, but I want to add the count to the beginning.

 

I have no idea what this means, but when I use <NUM_INST> I get "0.00".

 

 

Am I just going about this wrong?
