How do I create a parametric drawing note to show the number of members in a pattern?

You can easily show the pattern member note using the Show Model Annotations button under the Annotate tab. (Click on images to see full size)
If you right click on the note and select Properties you can see the parameter used to specify the pattern note (e.g. &P35). This parameter could be added to a different note if desired (e.g. placed with hole size)
If you update the number of members in the pattern, the note is automatically updated.
