Part name in balloon

Hi,

we want to use the part name in the ballooning instead of callout, but for part name less more long the standard, the text goes outside the underline.

Exist a setting to position the text on the left and the underline grow related to the text length ?

Would it be something with text origin?

Try setting the text origin to "lower left"?

Here are the settings. I changed the settings size to 1.0 to get the text to fit.

I've verified the setting and are the same, but the result doesn't change. What NX version have you ?

@cubalibre00,

Either right click on the Balloon and select Settings or double click it to bring up the dialog above and click on the Settings button. Both methods will get you where you need to go, which is the Settings dialog for the Balloon. Under the Settings dialog, change the balloon size to a larger value such that the text fits.

Hi @TimF,

I've found the setting like before, but entering the '1' as the image, I thoight that the value '1', fit automatically.

It's not so, for each text I need to find the exact value.

Doesn't exist a setting for the auto-fit ?

Thank you...

@cubalibre00,

 

No, I do not believe there is an Auto Fit.  If your part numbers all have the same number of characters, you can find the correct setting then select all the others and apply to all using inherit.  The Auto Fit would be a half-way decent ER, I would think.

 

If the part numbers are of differing character lengths and you're not going to change the text settings, I would suggest finding the one with the most characters and using that value for all of the balloons.
