add note to component name in history tree in assembly

OK. SW decided to unsuppress all the components in the tree. I have eight configurations (no design table, done with Configure Component). This assembly consists of over one hundred items that are suppressed/unsurpressed depending on configuration. It would be nice, from a bookkeeping perspective, to have a prefix, before the component name, that indicates that in what configuration(s) the item is Unsuppressed. That way, if things go south again, I can tell at a glance which items need to be suppressed/unsurpressed in what configurations. As it stands now, I have to check every part against a legacy drawing, to see if the item should be surpressed or unsupressed, in what configurations ( I am converting a legacy project to SW). I am reasonably certain that this can't be done presently. Does anyone have any ideas how I could accomplish the same thing, using the tools available in SW2011 sp2?

 

thanks,
