Allow creation of manual callouts for assemblies in Creo Illustrate

Allow creation of manual callouts for assemblies in Creo Illustrate

When manually creating item callouts/item lists in Creo Illustrate, you can only select a part as the reference for the callout.  If you want to have a callout for an assembly and it's parts, you can only use the automatic tool, but this will only let you do it for a single selected assembly or the entire structure.  Quite often you have a top level assembly with a number of sub-assemblies and you want to give a number to the sub-assembly and the parts within that sub-assembly and have them appear in the parts list.

Here is an example
1,2,3,4 for the parts
But for the assembly I have to create/write it manually...
PTC solution consist to combine children in the structure, but I need to see components independently
The assembly is not recognized as an entity, and Illustrate can't put balloons if there are no  geometry...
So the idea would be to find a way to recognize the assembly.
Similar problem for explode lines...

 

"Hood" assembly name"Hood" assembly name

good illustration @rpeyrard .

it could be nice to be able to automatically apply part and assembly balloons with an assembly balloon available in any sub component.
