Is it possible to add a box/outline around some text in a note?  I have a drawing that just needs to have a box around some text.  Thanks

Click the GD&T box then start typing your note.

Should look like the text below.

 

<&70><+>YOUR NOTE HERE<+><&90>

Thanks for the fast reply!  I did try that but found that I couldn't control the size of the box unless I just changed the font size of the text.  Since you have also recommended this approach, I'll accept this as solution and quite trying to fight it.  Saved me some time!  Thanks

Have you tried changing your height factor in the settings?  You may want to play with some of these setting which may help you out a bit.

That's what I ended up doing and it provided a reasonable solution.  Thanks, again, for the help - I do appreciate it.

Hello, is there any possibility to define to note acoording this:

If the NOTE will overlap any model lines etc. , these model lines will be hidden and the NOTE will be visible (not crossed with other lines of model).?

We would need a picture.

It seems that you could do somthing on the modeling side where the box is a body feature then you could use the text feature.

  1. Make text feature
  2. Make Parametric box
  3. Make box expressions dependant to text size

On the drawing view, display the wireframe through solids

If the text is above a crosshatch, there is a way to hide the crosshatching under the text.

Can you please explain me how to do it in the case of crosshatch?

 

Thanks,
