Inspection box/obround in a note

I've had a look through quite a few historical posts on this but can't find one with a definitive answer.

 

Specifically within a note, I am aware you can add a 'Basic' dim box by using the @[  and @] either side of the text to surround it in a box.

 

Is there an equivalent way of doing this in a note with the Inspection box/obround (a box with rounded corners)?

Nothing that I know can do this. What we've been forced to do, which is really annoying, is to actually sketch the oval-shaped outline around the text of interest. Really inconvenient when you want to change the text, but it looks okay.

Nope. You can add and inspection obround when using a dimension but there is no direct option for adding it to a note.

You could make a symbol to add to a note.

This should be submitted as a product idea.

Any special dimensioning 'characters' should be available to be used in a note.
