Callout Balloon Stacking

Michael_CoffeeMichael_Coffee Member Posts: 90 ✭✭✭
This might be more basic than what I'm thinking, but how do you "stack" the balloons with the callout feature? Like in SW, you can use multiple balloons (or callouts) by "stacking" them, and since I'm about to point out hardware, it'd be nice if I could use one leader with multiple balloons attached to it in Onshape.

    Sweet! At the moment, I'm just aligning the callouts to at least "look" like they're stacked (which I'm so glad aligning them is tremendously easier than SW x.x), so I'll be on the lookout for the update!

    As a new user (from SW), I sure wish this option would come to fruition.

    Just showing this improvement request some love. Stacked balloons are an incredibly useful feature for creating effective and concise drawings. (Not to mention they just look a lot more organized and clean)

    Me and my team are waiting with excitement for this feature. Any updates on when this will be implemented? @PeteYodis

    How has this function not been added yet? I could see this making people lose faith in the development team when a small yet very helpful function is promised but not functional for over 3 years.

    When will this feature be functional? This is my largest frustration with the product - my drawings are way more cluttered than they have to be.

    Agreed, this needs to be implemented. I cannot find your improvement request by the way. Can you post link?
