Enable parametric BOM balloons for Multiple Model BOMs

Enable parametric BOM balloons for Multiple Model BOMs

While it is possible to create a BOM (repeat region) with quantities listed for various forms of an assembly (lets say that the housing color changes, requiring different housing part numbers for each assembly variant), it is IMPOSSIBLE to create BOM balloons that are parametrically driven by the BOM table. This is EXTREMELY unfortunate and seems to cause a lot of headache. 

 

While there is a "work around" using non-BOM repeat regions to list part numbers based on the family table, this is cumbersome and not inline with industry standards. The alternative is to have a separate BOM for each variant, but syncing the item numbers becomes a manual process (very error prone) or to create balloon notes manually (again, very error prone).
