Something that has frustrated me for a while is when I set up my template, I set the balloons to layer "balloon" with the color orange in the document settings. But still when I add balloons they are placed on whatever current layer I am on with that layer's color. Is there a way to get this to work properly? Same problem with notes and probably anything else you can set to default layers. Am I missing something?
I am using Solidworks 2012 Premium x64 Edition, SP5.0
The current Layer will always override the settings at Document Properties. If you want new annotations to follow the Document Properties settings you need to have your current Layer setting at "-Per Standard".
