Mapkeys - select a region (balloons)

I tried to create mapkeys allow me to automatically creating Ballons from table with 3 repeat regions. I recorded action: (Create Balloons - All -> Select a region) x3 (every time chosing diffrent region of the table). When I run mapkey it's asking me to chose 3 regions then balloons apear. I would like to mapkey automatically chosing those three recorded regions instead of asking me to select a 3 regions all over again. Can I create mapkey which remembers my selection of regions?

If it is the same drawing or the tables are part of a template then you can use the find tool to search on the table ID. Table IDs change from drawing to drawing though so this won't work for different drawings.

Try using the search tool to explicitly select the 3 repeat regions and include that in the mapkey sequence. I would create a nested sequence and break out the search/selection as a separate mapkey that is called by the balloon creation mapkey.

I can't use search tools or any mapkey when I create Ballons. I need to select a repeat region by clicking left mouse button. Is there any other way to record those selection? I need to create mapkey which automatically choosing selection of a region in Create Ballons - all action.

Hi,

ask PTC Support. They will tell you whether this functionality is implemented.

I forget if I investigated it, but I have a similar mapkey and it simply prompts the user to pick the repeat region.
