Can anybody enlighten?
Hi Nick Tzallas, I saw your older posting in my search and investigation of Global Variables.
You can directly link an Annotation to a File-property, but unfortunately not (by default) to a GV (Global Variable).
If you want to link the Annotation with a GV, you have to link the GV first to a File-property.
Obviously this is usually done in the Part- or Assembly-file as shown in the Drawing view.
To link a GV to a File-property:
Create the GV with in the Equations Manager as usual, and “pull” it to a created File-property with a name of your choice in the same Part, by clicking on the “Value” drop down box. After this is done, you can easy link the Annotation with a GV via a File-property.
Only the information of the GV is pulled from the GV to the Annotation.
Hope this works for you.
