Quantity note beside Item Balloon - Automatically?

Quantity note beside Item Balloon - Automatically?

Quantity note beside Item Balloon - Automatically?

From a recent thread in the Solidworks forum:
"Balloon quantities" http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=367883

Apparently they are able to attach a quantity label to each balloon. Linked to the BOM quantity.
Is there a function like this in Inventor? I'll have to wait all weekend before I can try this at work.
The standard in my office is to attach a text note to the item balloon and manually type a quantity, for each and every balloon.

There in Style Editor you have to change balloon shape to Circle - 2 Entries.

I'll try it - Thanks!
