We can currently use &d1[.2] to show 2 decimal places for a real number shown in a note.
Allow the addition of "total display characters" like in this example: &d1[7.2]
The value 1.34 would have 3 blanks added in front: bbb1.34
The value 12.45 would have 2 blanks in front: bb12.45
The value 123.56 would have 1 blank in front: b123.56
The value 1234.67 would have no blanks.
The value 12345.78 would be shown as ****.**
Thus, you could have one multiline note, with values in boxes, using the Consolas font, to create a very nice table-looking note.
This would be more flexible than using a table in that some models might have 3 rows of data and other models might have 15 rows of data.
Example text of such a note:
This would only work with a fixed width font. A table would be easier to format and be able to be stored and added to any drawing.
