Some guys asking me what are the benefit or meaning of some signs in the new attributes since NX9.

Befor NX9 we have only:

A couple of the important things to note on that page are:

  • obj_id indicates the unique identifier of the object to which the attribute is associated.
  • RefN*0 is a unique identifier generated by NX for internal use.

Consider the above when creating templates (or copy pasting annotation from one part to another), because the unique identifier that was used when the annotation was created will likely be different for each part.
