Option to disable/turn off annotation leader snapping constraints

Option to disable/turn off annotation leader snapping constraints

CREO 4 added automatic snapping constraints on annotation leaders without any method to disable or turn off or disable the constraints.  I can be very infuriating when trying to organize notes and BOM balloons in a large drawing.

 

Something as simple as a right click to disable the constraint, similar to sketcher constraints, when moving the annotation would be much appreciated.  An option to turn off this function would also be nice.

The issue was submitted 2 years ago, and PTC acknowledged it 1.5 years ago. Any news when this will be implemented?

The acknowledge status doesn't really mean anything.

Just curious, how many votes to be accepted for implementation?

I have had the same issue and cannot find a fix other than using the surface option when i need to show to an edge. Also agree that it has been very difficult to move a single balloon. Have to pick the balloon, them move the mouse, then pick to move. What is that all about? Not sure what is wrong with PTC not correcting these 2 issues. I work with many software guys and would think this would be a pretty easy change to roll out in a new version, starting wtih Creo 3 or 4 and implementing the fix forward. In most cases, it seems as though PTC does not care much about us existing users for the small things like this. They must feel they have bigger fires to fight when it is these little time consuming issues that frustrate us the most.

The work around that I prefer to use is to move the attachment far from the desired location or on a surface, place the balloon in the desired location, then return the attachment to the desired location.  Moving the attachment piont is not regulated by the automatic constraints.
