Please do make use of this for the attached note
and for note without arrow
to each view you want to attach annoation (note).
It will give you the required result.
Thanks and Regards,
When typing out the annotation note on the drawing you can pick on the actual dimension in the drawing view that it shows up in. This will put that dimension in your note.
Thanks for reply. The only way that works is to define MyDim="Dim@Sketch1@@Config@Part1.SLDPRT" for the first configuration. When you add new configs MyDim assumes the new config value.
In the note I put $PRPVIEW:"MyDim", as I could put more than one part in the same drawing, so $PRPSHEET is not correct and $PRPMODEL need to be attached to the model. I know I could do as John suggest, but I don't want to put a quote just to link a note. Well, I put the note just to NOT add a view with the quote. I'm doing some sheetmetal cutting dxf, so I want to write down the tickness beside the profile.
This is another workaround, but if I would add a new Dimension AFTER I've made the configurations, then I should add MANUALLY all the definitions... It's ridiculous. As SW knows the value of all the variables, you should be able to recall them from anywhere. Why I can't simply write in the note something like $Dim@Sketch1, or $PRP:"Dim@Sketch1" and see the correct value appear? This should also happen in the config name and tables. I wonder if they will do it anytime in the future.
If the dimension is a constant in all of the parts, then a custom property will work and it does not need to be attached to a view, just associated to it.
In my attached image, I have 3 configrations all related via a common dimension referred to using a configuration specific file property called "Length".
Each of the views has a note that independently updates with the correct value.

Thanks for reply. I think $PRPSHEET is to be used just for drawings with one part, i.e. if you put the Mass in the sheet format, that is not associated with a view, it will update related to the view specificated in the sheet properties. It seems that, if the view specificated is left to "Default", it behaves like $PRPVIEW if you associate the note to a view. But if you select another view then all the notes will change according to that.
In the image you can see the differences, with the first view selected in the sheet properties.
I always believe this should not be necessary. You should be able to write "Dim@Sketch1" and automatically see the dimension for that view, that configuration. And for the model in the sheet properties if not associated to a view. This should be automatic.
