Sort of auto balloons

Hi,

 

we have an interesting experience here (NX8.5) with auto balloons. Me and I guess most people drop Auto Balloons with a command from parts list MB3 menu. But then, most of the times, you need to rearrange those.

 

 Today I found out the other way around. First he adds empty balloons using simple Balloon command, then he does Update Parts List command and balloons are auto-filled with Callouts.

 

I tried this way, and its not working for me, ballons remain empty after update. We went through Parts list, Balloons even View settings, one by one and found nothing.

 

Any ideas how to make it work both ways?

Hi,

You need to set this environment variable UGII_UPDATE_ALL_ID_SYMBOLS_WITH_PLIST = 1 for the same.
