Star (Asterix) in Balloons

This is an old one but always seems to cause me headaches:


  • Assembly detailed drawing
  • Assemblies (made up of parts)  are in a dummy assembly inserted off the face of the sheet
  • individual assemblies are detailed (Altered item drawing) on the drawing
  • BoM is inserted and points to the assembly off the sheet, set to insert top level only
  • link views to the BoM in the view properties
  • Part assemblies have config setting set to hide child components i if used in an assembly. Tried doing the hide components in BoM setting to with no luck.


No matter how I mess around with it I cannot get the balloons to show the correct find number just an asterix.


I've done this in the past a number of times and it has always caused a bit of grief but somehow it suddenly starts working but not in this case.

Thanks in advance for any tips to fix this.
