Hide some text in the Format Text box but not all

I'd like to be able to have 2 lines in the Format Text box and have the first line show up on the drawing (IDW) but have the other line only show up in the Format Text box for reference.  I've tried making a new Text Style of Hidden but any time I try to change one line it automatically changes them both.


Is this even possible?

My first thought is why not create some properties and have those in the drawing format.

Then when you populate them in the iproperties>custom tab only fill out the one you want.  The one that is not

filled out will show up blank.  Will this work for you?
