Ballooned item BOM - Idea to use general tables

Hi,

 

SW has shown no indication to enhance BOM's functionality & Balloon callouts. So I thought maybe we can lower the bar and make it easier for them

Instead of adding filter functionality to BOM's maybe they can add functionality to General tables. Give General tables the ability to show

balloon item numbers same way as Revision table symbols. The sample below pulls custom properties. But $PRPWLD should also work

to pull cutlist properties. All SW needs to add is the ability to insert the balloon item number linked to the internal component ID and automate the process

to insert a new row for each item ballooned and not already existing in the table.

 

 

Just trying to offer a simple workaround with existing code functionality that won't take 5 years to implement.

 

Note: I post it here cause it is easy to do. So don't ask me to post an enhancement request. They are useless from my point of view.
