Hole Table Precision

I have searching around the forum for a while and I have seen several other discussion most dating back to 2012-2014.  What I have is hole chart for a block with a bunch of different holes.  Some holes are allot more critical than others.  So I want some to be two place decimals, some three place, and critical items to be four place.  I know I can change the entire chart to each precision individually.  Have they come up with a way to have multiple precisions within the same chart.  Since it has been years since people were asking I am hoping they have come up with a solution I and I am just missing it.  Previous post I found was

I agree!
We should be able to set the precision by number of decimal places for size of hole,
counterbore, the depth of the hole, and whatever other column we show in the hole
chart independently.

Hi,

 

I think you will get a new options with Solid Edge ST10, what enables to override Hole table cells...

Re: Hole Table Precision

Looks good, but all that would be totally unnecessary if the tolerance was described in the model hole feature and could be brought through into the draft.

I am not even so much concerned about being able to change the tolerance although nice addition.  I would just like to make say holes 1-5 a four place dimension and holes 6-8 two place dimensions and holes 8-15 3 place dimensions.  Then all of the dimensions go back to a standard tolerance block.  I am guessing with the lack of reply there still isn't curretly any way to do it.
