I want this balloon to be black and not green. Also, I want to change the size of it. How can I do that.

Click the tip of the leader's arrowhead and drag it off any part.
The balloon # becomes "?".
Drag the arrowhead tip again and until the cursor displays the edge symbol (similar to the edge filter button below):
Release the mouse button when you see this cursor.
If the arrowhead changes to a dot, you missed an edge and selected a face instead.
See the attached movie. Popcorn not included.
Usually that is when the balloon is not pointing to the item on the BOM. This happens when you do a change or save as and that particular part is changed. Move the leader to the part and it should update.
I'd like to do it manually. Can I?
Yes, select the balloon, right click on it and press ''Reattach''

Can you select the leader and drag it to the part?
Hey Matt, it is not the component that you need to click but the balloon. After selecting the balloon, a right click should give you the option to reattach.
Sory for the french menus

I love French menus. We dined at Petite Louise in Baltimore on Saturday. Scrumptious.
But back on topic, why did the balloon turn green and keep the number? Usually when a balloon becomes detached, it turns red and shows a question mark.
I was able to replace the question mark but nothing else.
I've had balloons remain attached but be green because the component was not deleted but modified. Seems to happen a lot less in 2019 tough.
To change the size for all of the balloons in the current document, modify these settings:
To save these settings for future drawings, modify your drawing template.
For an individual balloon, select it and change these settings in its property manager.
I want to change the size of a particular balloon. It seems that this method will modify all balloons.
You can click on the balloon and click on properties and make your changes from there, just that balloon. You can go into the Tools/Options/Document Settings and there it will change everything, but you can select individual balloons and make individual changes...
