Adding notes to a design

    I suspect this aspect of communication - the very necessary 'note this' typical written comment, can only be easily applied to designs / drawing s etc, through addition of the paid for, add-on 'Drawing Module'.

    DSM mantra for their basic free product is, 'Concept Creation and Rapid Prototying' So, for a small amount of note adding,  the first method outlined by yourself is a possible work around although in V5, it doesn't work for me.. I have tried and tried !

    For professsional drawings, done in a speedy way, ( not manually duplicated models , orientated and annotated per view etc ), i think the add-on module is the only sensible approach.

    If needing to exchange information, then again, and although basic, the Exchange module is a necessity. Buying both together offers a discount. Buying singulary there are licencing issues /problems.

    This was created by drawing a square .001 x 001 Dimension it then change the text to suit. Change the Arrow style to none.

    Select the text and add a 'Note Leader' pick one of the anchor points then move the end where required. Change the 'Arrow' to any of the other options.

    Thanks Jacant...

    That works well.

    In V5, in using sketcher constraints, ( maybe non - constraints as well ) lengths of lines can't be drawn less than 0.03mm and circles less than 0.06 dia mm. Once these are created ( i suggest as 'Layout Lines'  or construction lines ), in 3D mode theses can have their size reduced to 0.001mm as an example. In structure browser, rename these lines / circles so not to delete them and the associated note ! Perhaps put text notes and ankors on a separate layer...

    I agree it's a fairly simple way and really helps with making occasional text a reasonable possibility... but for regular /professional use of making / annotating drawings under time constraints, this writer would invest in the Drawing Module.

    However, i will use this method...

    Controlling the position of the leader - i use the position of the text ankor. Seems a very easy way to move around the leader arrow.

    If i use a 'Note Leader' i can't remove the dimension extension line - sure, arrows can adjusted be 'None' etc, but i can't hide the lines...

    You can get some good results...

    and, for safety of not snapping to a note ankor - put them on their own layer...
