Adding custom symbols to Callout dialog box

Is there a way to add custom symbols to the Callout Dialog box?

 

My company has non-standard callouts that are used on a few select dimensions for incoming inspection purposes, these are not going to change to anything else.

 

Symbol gets placed adjecent to relevant dimension. My issue is that when I have these on drawing and the dimension gets moved or view gets moved, the symbol does not get relocated. I attached a screen capture of a drawing that has some on it. The 'M' in a diamond shape is on this drawing. All other symbols are in a diamond shape, others have different letters. Lower left side of drawing has a note indicating meaning and inspection requirements of each.

Why not use a diamond balloon shape with "M" inside linked to the dim? It will move with the dim and/or view.
