CAD Detail View Defaults

Hi all. I have a question about the CAD detail drawing view. How do I set the defaults so text, leader lines and dimensions draw on the correct layer? Whenever I start drawing a new detail, I make sure my current CAD layer is set to the CAD layer I set up for drawing details. But there doesn't appear to be a way to do the same for text, leader lines and dimensions. So for example, I will draw a leader line and it will default to the layers I have set up in my normal drawing view page (for printing at 1/4" scale), not the layers I set up for for the CAD view (for printing at 1/2" scale). This means I have a leader line with a huge line weight and arrow. My work around is to manually adjust the leader line and then copy and paste the leader line so I don't have to keep changing them every time I place a new one. Same thing for text and dimensions. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Make an annotation set with the defaults you want, then have that selected before doing detail from view. Or use it when creating a new detail from scratch.

Thank you soooo much! It worked. Super simple step but not obvious.
