Inventor doesn't have that option.

I have used that feature in autoCAD mech, but I'd be worried about performance in large assemby drawings if it were used in Inventor

basic drafting break dim lines should have absolutely no effect on performance

they are an essential part of good drafting, I hate putting out drawings with noncomformance to basic drafting practice and standards
