Centerlines and centerline Labels in a Config rich environment

Above is a picture taken from 2 different sheets, showing different configuarions of an Assembly. The cylinder diameter and length change from one to the next. I have perhaps 20 configs that I am making drawings for.


When I copy a master sheet or template and change to a specific config, the Centerline doesn't keep any corresponding relationship to the geometery. Is there a way (short of drawing the CL in the Assembly as a sketch) to acocmoplish this so that the Cl will extend past the physical end of the assembly by such and such on each end?


Additionally, I've added a CL note on the verticle line, the note "Anchor" button doesn't attach it to anything specific, it is part of the drawing view, but requires adjustment for each drawing. Is there a way to attach a note to an "insertion point" R, C or L type to a coincident mate with the line? Anything along those lines?


Thank you in advance for your time and suggestions.
