I was wondering if there is a way to add a leader to an auto created BOM balloon on a drawing. I have a view with multiple items that are the same and cannot find how to add another attachment for the additional parts.
Also, does anyone have a custom symbol that you can have multiple balloons for the same leader. this would be good when pointing to a bolted assembly where you have a bolt/screw, washer and nut. This way you have one leader for all three, and don't need three separate balloons for each part.
One more item, is there a way to add in the quantity on the BOM balloon?
I believe you can click on the annotate tab, right click the balloon, add reference then click and hold CTRL and click all the areas you want the extra leaders to..
It is not possible to do this for parametric balloons (driven by repeat regions). You could create your own symbol that looks like a balloon and manually add it with multiple leaders (although I wouldn't advocate for this).
You are not the first to make this request. It may be a good product idea request.
To add the quantity:
Use window select, query select, or hove mouse off corner of table to highlight the whole table.
Depending on the amount of items in a view I just "Create Balloons - All" delete all the balloons that I do not want multiples of, and then "Create Balloons - View". This will give me multiple instances of a single balloon number(say if you have multiple switches or fasteners that look the same in a view but are technically different PN) and then the rest of the items can be identified by the single balloon.
