Studio5000 - Bit Descriptions on an UDT DINT

Is there a way that you can add individual descriptions to each bit member of a DINT in a Studio5000 UDT? I use bits on a DINT for my individual HMI alarms and I'd like to have the descriptions in the PLC as well.

I'm using v24, but we may be moving up to v30 in the next while if that helps.
