Does anyone know a "good" way to generate Flagnotes in a General Notes (annotation)? I have been fighting with this for weeks. This only thing i have come up with is to do everything manually. There has got to be a better way!!!
Ah... from the list - no, from the BOM or Cut List - yes.
You could utilize the Revision Table functionality to achive a similar result to what I think you're describing.
I dont know how these points work. Your reply didn't completely answer my question, but I found it benificial. Thanks.
It would help to have you post a screen shot of the end goal you're working toward. :-)
This is what I am trying to replace. This is the general notes from sheet one of a print. This includes an example of the flagnote (note 2), and its use in the drawing.
You cant turn a bullet list number into a flag note, but you can insert a symbol. we've modified the gtol.sym file (C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\lang\english\Gtol.sym) to add symbols for flag notes and other symbols we often use inside notes.
We've also set up our general notes and flag notes in a drawing template, so we don't have to open up an old drawing or recreate notes from scratch. We also start our flag notes at 30. That way we have plenty of roo, for adding other general notes. After the last note we add a line that reads "7-29. Not Used."
Based on the limited number of responses, perhaps this practice is not as prevalent as I thought.
Too bad. I was hoping to get some feedback to get SW to consider implementing it.
I agree with Charles... autonumbering with the ability to toggle certain note lines to a Flag note would be outstanding.
Has anyone found a better way to do this than faking an empty flag over the note number?
Am I missing something in this conversation? In SW2010, you can add a border around any part of an annotation you wish. You don't need the flagnote symbols anymore at all, as you can just put a border around the number itself. This works even with automatic numbering.
Very cool. I did not realize that you could select the numbers created during the autonumbering. I hadn't tried double-clicking. The only problem is that turning an autonumber to a flag number messes up the indenting for the rest of the table. Still exploring this.
yes very cool, I thought it was 2011 they did this (oops). much better then manually putting in squares
