Wrong item number displayed on balloons

lucas_antkowiaklucas_antkowiak Member Posts: 2 PRO
Hello !
New user here,

I try to create an exploded view with balloons on an assembly, but it looks like my balloons are only linking the "top level" item number.
I have a subassembly (1.1, 1.2, 1.3...) and the balloon only show "1" for all parts of the subassembly.

Same thing for the part number : If i select Table:Part number, it shows only the Top level number and when i select Part:Part number it works well.

    UPDATE

    For those who have this problem : I found that I used 2 times the BOM (2 sheets drawing with 2 BoM inserted)
    So the balloons follow the first BOM inserted which was TOP level structure.

    You have to delete all BOMs and use only the one you want to link with your balloons, and 1 Bom is linked to all sheets of the drawing.

    You don't need to delete the second BOM.

    Instead, you double click the view you are attaching your balloon, then on the very bottom of the dialogue box there will be a drop down list of every BOM in the drawing.

    Select the one you need there

    I have at least one BOM per sheet, it neeis to be more automatic on child views. I have an improvement request  floating around somewhere for this
