ability to link or add Feature Control Frame to a dimension in Annotation

Currenlty in drafting you can copy the text string of a feature control frame (FCF) and paste it into an "fix" of a dimension. We have predefined some of the sub fixes with generic entries that users just modify to their specific needs.  One benefit of this is that when placing this dimention the dimension lines will adjust and not cross over the subfix FCF on a horizontally oriented dimension. In annotation it is not possbile to embed the FCF as the subfix, so users will try to place the FCF under the dimension and break the dimension line. This will work until you update the view/drawing and since the end point of the dimension line does not change when doing a break, the dimension line becomes whole again extending over the FCF unless you leave a small section of the dimension line above the FCF.  Embedding the FCF into a "FIX" would be a great improvement to Annootaiton.
