Is it possible to create a user defined balloon border and if possible drive the colour of the border from a part parameter.
Do a search for Gtol.sym file. ( https://forum.solidworks.com/message/86286#86286 )
You will find a bunch of stuff on this topic.
This is an ASCI text file that has the definitions for all the balloons. There are some good sides to making your own balloon border shapes but far more drawback to it. SW 2014 makes this a little easer for in-house use, but when dealing with outside vender and sharing your files including e-drawing the Gtol.sys will have to be given out as well.
Thanks for the reply. Looking at the thread you sent the file relates to geometric symbols. I would like to create new borders for BOM balloons.
If possible the new shape and colour would be linked to a property we use for our parts which desinates the part as primary/secondary/tertiary.
Sorry for the long delay in a reply. I don't think you can change the balloon callout for border. But I see where you are going with it and like the Idea. you should make a inhancement request I'd vote for it.
