I distinctly remember someone sharing a hack that would allow multi-line text to be passed via a parameter into a note or table cell. I've scoured the community and I can't find it, but I think that may be more a function of how the search tool works here. It was something along the lines of creating a multi-line note, referencing the note with a parameter, and then using that parameter on the drawing. Does anyone remember the exact steps to make this work? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, this post here seems to be exactly what I'm looking for, but I can't read the picture and it doesn't expand when I click on it. I'm not understanding how the link between the note parameter and the note itself is configured.
I have the test part and drawing open, but I don't see how the link is created. I'm wondering if this has something to do with PTC removing the separate pop up dialog for creating notes. I'm wondering if there is some internal note ID that used to be displayed on that dialog that isn't present anymore...
You can still right click on the the note - properties - to get the "pop-up" note. I have to do this in order to make "box" notes. i.e. Note #3 has a box around the three and therefor in the pop-up it is @[3@]. and the same with the leader pointing to what it needs to point to.
I was clicking on the note itself in the drawing not in the tree. Using Creo 4, so not sure if it has changed in Creo 6.
Yes, the separate dialog for notes has been removed. Now they are part of the ribbon and the note ID is apparently no longer exposed (except in the tree column.)
For sake of completeness, the help article mentions adding this config.pro option
I don't have Creo 6.0, so i can't tell whether the old note-properties dialog box, enabled by the above, allows you to see the note's ID.
'Convert' didn't do anything obvious except get rid of the little circle with the arrow in the note name.
Here's what the help docs say about 'Covert':
Yes, that definitely helps. This is the part I was looking for:
I'm just not sure where that information is displayed in Creo 6:
