I would like the names such as (BF8) in the BOM to show up in balloon's/ tags on part (BF8) how does one do this?
Can you go into the balloon properties, and choose the correct property from Balloon Text? There's also a Custom Properties where you can choose many of the properties.
I've tried all of the settings, none show what is in the BOM, think it has something to do with the parts being in sub assemblies??
When I work with subassemblies the balloons have the subassembly item number in it. I've never had a reason yet to point out components in a subassembly because that's another model and drawing for us. I don't have SW running now, but can you exlpode the subs into their components? Your BOM would have all the parts of all the subs listed then. Maybe someone else here has a better solution.
