Dual Dimensions - Reference Parenthesis Location

Hi all,

 

With respect to parenthesis location on reference dual dimensions -

 

SolidWorks currently places the parenthesis on the outside of the entire callout: (xx.xx [x.xxx])

 

We have an internal company standard that requires them to be placed around each dimension: (xx.xx) [(x.xxx)].

 

While ignoring whether there is any 'real' difference in understanding what either of these mean, any thoughts on how this can be accomplished while maintaining dimension associativity (e.g., not manually editing the text)?

 

p.s. Using SW2009, going to upgrade to 2011 soon.
