Hi Sam,

 

It seems to be working as expected here....can you post pictures of what you're seeing, and maybe the call out text string being used also? Is this draft of a part or an assembly model??

Hi Sam,

 

Without the assembly files to accompany the draft, it creates a disconnected draft, so none of the property text I add will not display any values pertinent to the parent file.

 

Your chassis assembly has mixed materials, so the "Index Reference" can't get a clear reading, at least where materials is concerned.

I think what you need to use here is the ,"From Graphic Connection" for item callouts, or "Named Reference" for assembly wide callouts.

 

NOTE: this doesn't account for configuration views of an assembly. [it'll display top level assy info]
