Solidworks 2015 Enhancement | Drawing Zones

When can we get these?

We use drawings zones for change notices in our product drawings, so there isn't much use there.  But for our tool drawings, which often exceed 6 D- or E-size sheets, having the 

sheet-zone

callout in the Parts List and near the balloons is a real time saver in finding the information needed on these multi-detail prints.

 

Before I place an ER, does anyone else still stuck in the drawing age utilize sheet-zone references?

I'm all the way at the other end of the spectrum. I have to draft everything for 8.5X11.

 

Your zones are larger than my sheets!

I'd tack onto this Scott.....I don't use them, but probably would if it were easier, and/or "auto-magically" possible.

When we were last acquired, we had to update our title blocks which did not use drawing zones; our suppliers complained so much that we decided to go rogue and add them back in; this would be a great feature to have.
