Notes/Balloons question

mark_wallströmmark_wallström Member Posts: 4

From my understanding this is how these things works in onshape:

  • Balloons can be put on surfaces or verticies, notes can not.
  • The size of the balloon can not be controlled nor can it be removed
  • The line type and look can not be changed on either balloon or note
My question is if any of these can be changed/controlled on the template via a dwt editor. My end goal is something similar as this picture. Is this possible some way?

The purpose is for patent drawings.

    Yes Mark, I am keen to see more balloon options too. At the moment the balloon size looks way too big on small paper size with no way to change it , however I haven't check since the last update.
