Suggestion: Geometric Tolerance placement struggle

Take a look at the image below.  The top geometric tolerance can be properly placed where I want (sitting above the dimension leader line) without issue.

If I want to place another tolerance box BELOW the bottom leader line for the bottom of my part:

I must first enter some dummy data into the top line of the dialog, then put what I really want into the lower line (once it becomes un-greyed).  Then, finally, removing the dummy data from the top line.  I can then place this where I want it, so it sits below the edge I've attached it to.

 

I'd like a simpler way to do this - a flip control, or grip (like we have for leader lines) that will allow you to invert it.

 

This has bugged me since I started using SW - finally got unlazy and decided to comment on it.

 

Is there a more proper place for suggestions/ideas?

 

Thanks
