Link external dim text

This is from the help system, but I still don't understand. I thought it would either show or not show text that I typed into the dimension box in the PropertyManager like this ( TEST) but it didn't seem to change anything. Any insight offerd out there?


"Link external dim text. You can right-click the top-level icon in a drawing FeatureManager design tree and select or clear Link external dim text to control whether text added to a dimension is displayed. Text added to a dimension in a drawing becomes an attribute of the dimension. The default is to have the option enabled."

It looks to me like this. When you add Model Items to your drawing, and then add text to the dimension that feature puts in the drawing. When this option is checked it also adds the same text to the model. If this is not checked the text is only added to the drawing. Why would you use this. Derrr I duh no! I guess it is possible that you would want to see these notes while editing a model but your guess is as good as mine.
