Is it possible to use component id (cid_x) in drawing notes?

Hi all,

Is it possible to use component id (cid_x) in drawing notes? I tried
"&SIZE:CID_1" in place of "&SIZE:2" and that didn't work.

There's mention in the help file about using cid_x in relations, but not
any mention of using it in notes. I'm currently using the session id
(i.e. "Tire size is &SIZE:2") and might be able to eliminate a process
step or two if I can reference the component id instead.

Thanks,

I was not able to do so in notes, but a workaround would be to create a parameter and make it equal to the value you want inrelations.
