Is it possible to create a callout within an inset? So the leader line should end within the inset area. Now, when I select an object within the inset and attach a callout to it, then the leader line of the inset points to the corresponding object in the main model, but not to the part within the inset. Because the inset is much more detailed it is better visible where the leader line of the callout points to.
We use this functionality a lot within our company, so this question is quite important to us.
Thanks in advance for your answer!
The idea is that I create a relatively small "overview" image of my design model.
I create relatively large Inset views that points to the overview image - in that way I can document where the detail is located.
In t the detailed Inset view I would like to be able to add annotations and callouts because this is where I actually can see the detailed design.
Thanks for all the input. This is a known requirement and we are actively working to address this. It is planned that Creo Illustrate 3.0 M020 should have the ability to show callouts on Inset views
Was this feature created? Are there instructions for how it is done? I managed to do it once but now I cannot recreate the process of adding the callouts to the parts within the inset. Thanks.
Yes, this feature has been available for a long time now.
Callouts can be added to parts in insets in exactly the same way as adding a callout to the part in the main view.
This short video shows the workflow.
Hope this helps.
