Is there a way to lock down the actors so they don't move when I have the BOM and exploded view finished.
which actors do you mean? Callouts? Geometry? The BOM Itself is also an actor.
Explain a little bit your problem. There is no possibility to lock callouts e.g. But it may be to give you another tipp for your problem.
Posting a picture of the problem helps too.
I was looking to lock down the geometry actors that are brought in from SolidWorks. When trying to create a BOM because of the large assembly I go to zoom in on the part to pick but always forget there are two ways to zoom. Both the geometry and the sheet itself. To lock down the geometry actors would be the ideal thing to do.
Pardon, there is no chance to lock the geometry.
Zooming paper size is done by using Mouse together with CTRL.
a trick to select an part is to set other geomtry to ghost by using tab for highlighted geometry. This is back if you move the cursor to background. So leave the cursor over geometry and use tab to fade out not used parts.
Other possibility to create a selection set from all parts you dont need and then switch them off.
Thanks for the input. I am fairly new to this program and I don't use it on a regular basis. Although I have had training there are still a lot of questions that need answered. I may use the program once a year for a short time frame
a difficult situation "once a year". You have no chance to get routine.
May be you will find some of answers here.
