showing hole depth in a drawing

I'm doing a drawing with holes. If I use "show model annotations" and select on the feature, it shows the dimesions for that feature in that view.

In Wildfire I had an option to show all dimensions, and it would show hole dimensions, and the depth in a perpendicular view. I could then edit the hole diameter dimension to include the depth. [why isn't this an option to show with the diameter dimension? It should have been added a long time ago]

Anyways, in Creo I show the dimensions for that feature, and the depth does not show. I have to go to another view, turn that view to show hidden, find the feature, and then show the dimension.

Am I missing some simple means of getting the hole depth, or did Creo lose something along the way?

The new paradigm in Creo has predefined hole notes. -If- you use this feature, you can include the depth as part of the hole annotation. However, I agree, it was much easier in the past to format a consistent hole format without having to customize .hol files.

We've had this discussion somewhat in depth before.

The very fact that the default callout for UNC-2B is UNC - 2B pretty much forces me to format each hole note manually.
