How to show weld annotations on drawing detail view, but not on general view

I need to show the weld sequence on one part of a large assembly.  To make the information easier to read, I want to show the weld sequence on a detail view.  However, "Show Model Annotations" on the Detail View says for Symbols "No annotations can be shown in the current sheet/view for the selected objects".  I can only show the weld annotations on the General View (which is too large to be of any use on a printed sheet).

I have tried layer visibility (all weld features are in their own layer), but again, this only works on the General View.

 

I could manually create new weld annotations on the Detail View, but the weld and the annotations already esist in the model, so it seems stupid to have to re-create them by hand. How can I show weld annotations from the model on a Detail View?

Hi,

use partial general view instead of detail view.

Thanks @MartinHanak 

Partial view did the trick.  My tunnel vision was telling me I had to do it in a Detail View, but this works as well.

Cheers!
