Drawing - Placing a callout onto a face

Genius
Genius

Can any one please explain how I can attache a callout to a face on a ISO view in a drawing.

 

I want to disply informaion about the face, but can only seem to pick on an edge. If I place the callout in space (Over the face) it does not move if I move the ISO view, while the callouts attached to an edge do move.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First attach the callout to an edge.

Then use Ctrl+Alt+Drag to drop it on the face.

The callout will stay with the face.

Tushar,

 

That was one of your 60 tricks in 60 minutes at SEU15 if I recall.  Thanks for the tip!

Tushar,

 

That tip stands out for me because I do a lot of assembly drawings and frequently need to point a leader to a face rather than an edge.  Now I won't have to worry about leaders being left behind when I move views around on the page.

 

Thanks again for all you do to help the Solid Edge Community!
