Auto Ballooning Not Working

Creator

Hi,

 

Somehow I have turned off the auto balloon function when placing an assembly.

It still works perfectly fine if I place a single part. The part list populates and a balloon is automatically placed.

When I select parts List it shows that I have auto balloon selected and to place table.

It places the table but does not balloon.

Now I have to manaully place the balloons and then update view. This is time consuming and tedious.

 

Why is the sheet not auto ballooning on assemblies ?

@RF,

 

That's strange...the Auto-Balloon "button" is active too.

Have you looked at the parts list proerties for any clues, on the Balloon tab settings there?  [maybe even an SE restart - possibly system reboot]

The balloon tab is greyed out so I cannot change anything there.

Yes, it will be, as the operation is a one-shot deal, and you only get those ribbon bar options before you place the list......delete the parts list and start it again, then they will be active again. The properties should be accessible during & afterwards though.

Sean is right, and I would like to add that "at that point in time", is the only way to update your saved parts list setup.

 

The same thing is true for some of the drafting settings. You have to have a temp model and view to draft a template and get the settings into the draft template. Once the template is created with the right settings, then you can delete the related model so that the template does not have a model attached. Lot's of work to get things set up right.

Okay,

 

I have sorted my issues out now. I had a few boxes selected that I shouldn't have had selected.

 Thanks for the help.
