    SW2014 - COMPONENT REFERENCE BALLOONS

    Alex Smith

      I HAVE ASSIGNED ALL ASSEMBLY COMPONENTS A COMPONENT REFERENCE NUMBER.  i HAVE ALSO CREATED A BOM WITH THE COMPONENT REFERENCE NUMBERS (WORKS GREAT), BUT FOR SOME REASON THE BALLOONS DO NOT SHOW WITH THE NUMBER WHEN THE COMPONENT REFERENCE IS SELECTED AT THE TIME THE BALLOON IS BEING CREATED.  ACTUALLY THEY ARE BLANK OR HAVE THAT ENVELOP SYMBOL IN IT.  PLEASE HELP.....WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

          For a start, it is common practice in forums to avoid typing everything in capital letters. It is often thought to equate to shouting, and it also makes it harder to read.

           

          Is your reference number a custom property? Click on one of the balloons, look in the Property Manager and in the drop-down box under "Balloon text". By default it is set to "Item Number". You might need to set it to one of the other options, depending how you have set your reference number.
