does anyone know if it's possible to select assembly in drawing with arrow pointer? Assuming I want assembly name of this valve, instead of selecting part of it I'd like to draw properties from assembly...
I don't think you can do it with a Balloon, but you should be able to get what you want with a Note. Place the end of the leader first, then when the text box is activated click on the "Link to Property" icon in the Property Manager. That will bring up the dialog box shown below. Check the various selections in the drop-downs circled.
it's the same thing. Selected component is a part instead of assembly... and there is no option to change to parent ... or move through hierarchy.
To be honest, I'd never tried to link a Note to a sub-assembly before, but in the screenshots above and below I was able to link to the sub-assembly.
Yeah... sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't... which is weird.
If you're having a hard time getting the arrow to show up you can always right click on the dot and change it to arrow instead of ''automatic switch''(don't know how you would call the default setting)
