Different View Description?

Not sure exactly how to describe what I'm looking for.  The best way I can describe what I want is as follows:


Some of my drawings have a reference to another view, say "View A". View A itself might be enlarged, or show more detail or whatever. 

I want to find an easy way to construct the designator for View A.  That is, the little part on the main drawing that tells us that there IS a View A.  

Specifcially, I'm looking for what I can clumsily describe as follows:

"A circle drawn around that section of the drawing that's being referred to in View A, with the letter A inserted into the diameter, with arrows at both ends pointing towards the A". 

If I could find an example I'd include it, but I'm hoping someone here will know what I'm referring to and tell me whether ACADLT 2011 can easily produce it.  I can draw it manually if need be, but I was hoping the software can make it easy.

You'd have to draw something (on a no-plot layer) to provide you with that type of information: nothing built-in beyond the small preview you can see in VIEW command's pop-up when you select one.
