How to display notes ?

Hello

After the story of the hidden lines last week, here is my new challenge of the week :

Displaying Notes

First of all, the Annotation Element Display button is activated.

Then, I do the Annotation Plane Definition with View > Annotation Orientation

When I do Insert > Annotations > Notes and I try to place a note, ProEngineer simply does not display the note...

If I try Insert > Annotations > Notes, then Show > All, the notes are not displayed.

Is there a special command or option that allows to display the notes ?

I use Pro Engineer Wildfire 4.0 Student Edition. Perhaps it is a limitation of the Student Edition, but I did not find any information about this.

Thanks.

Sylvain

Re: How to display notes ?

A couple of things to check:

1) Check that the notes are not hidden in the model tree. You may need to set the tree filters to show annotations to see them.

2) Check the config.pro to see if the option model_note_display is set (same as using the 3D Note Display icon). Option is now a hidden one.

3) You can add the 3D Note Display icon to the tool bar by customizing the screen.

hi Sylvain,

I am solving the same problem at the moment.

You can make notes in assembly mode that act like datums. Theres an icon to show and hide annotation in the same panel with datum planes, points etc. Maybe you can add notes in part mode too, I am not sure.

I used the same command to create my note: Insert > Annotations > Notes

Then I did following:

I am in mold assembly mode creating that note btw

Note that in thel last picture I am pointing at the same pin on the other side of the assembly which is the exact same pin. Right now I am trying to figure out how to make a note with two leaders to the same note so I can point at that other pin at the same time.

In your pictures select Mod Attach. If it works like notes in a model there should be an Add Ref selection, select that and hold the CTRL key while making other selections.

hi Kevin,

That works great.

Thanks alot.

Re: How to display notes ?

Hello Kevin !

Thanks, the problem was the model_note_display parameter set to no ...

The funny stuff is that there is no word about this parameter in the ProEngineer help.

Have a nice week-end !

Re: How to display notes ?

This usually happens when using a config.pro setup created for use with an earlier version. PTC will remove options or make them hidden which is what happened in this case as it was an option listed in WF3 and earlier. This is one reason it's suggested to be careful if using a config.pro from an earlier version.

Hello Jakub

Thank you for your very detailed procedure. It was not the problem I had, but I will keep it if necessary
