In drawings, there is a way to configure Solidworks so that annotations that are dragged on top of each other merge. Is there a way to get annotations that are added to part/assemblies to behave the same way?
SW introduced a new feature two or three years ago that caused notes to merge when the user would click and drag one near another note. I, and many other users, didn't like it, so they gave an option to turn it off. See below. As far as I know the notes merging only works in drawings.
