I've got hundreds of connected panels that need to be numbered. Auto Balloon takes me somewhat in the direction I need to go, but leaves a lot to be desired. First, when I save a balloon to a style, it doesn't take leader properties with it.

I want to change the accuracy of the 'length' field in the cut list on a drawing to zero decimal places (our default is one dp). I can change the sheet properties, but this will also change all the dimensions already on the drawing; is there a way to edit only the cut list dimensions?

I am trying to print my drawings on 2017 but my drawings aren't scaled properly. I go into page setup and select scale to fit and landscape. It won't allow me to select print or preview so I click ok. Go back to page set-up and my preferences i just entered aren't saved.

Most of my entries in my BOM table are left justified with a slight indent so the first letter isn't jammed into the table's line, but a few entries are center justified. I would like these center justified items to be left justified, but when I hit the left justify button it jams the entry into the table's line. How do I add that indent to the formatting?

I know the symbol shows the definition of welding. However some of pictures have many welding operations. Then the drawing view will be covered with weld symbols.

I need save BOM template with empty rows. I create BOM, add rows and hide item number (I guess - I'm sorry, I haven't got English version). But If I save it as template, and insert to drawing, empty rows are deleted.

My company has a common set of sheet formats (A,B,C, &D size) that we use for drawings. It has not varied per manufacturing process although that may need to change. Typically, we design sheet metal, injection-molded plastics, & machined parts. One of the problems I am encountering is that the angle tolerance for machined & injection-molded plastics needs to differ from that of sheet metal parts.

They're not exactly identical. The volume is only 0.04 inches off in the mass properties. Is that a big deal? I did notice a few needed changes to my drawings from this.

My background is in 3D art and graphics design rather than architectureEngineering (Form over function, basically), so I don't understand many of the terms used on this forum, I only know the absolute basics of Draftsight, and may not be able to give any additional information without assistance. I've been given a set architectural diagrams, and a copy of Draftsight, and I've been asked to make some modifications to them as I'm the only other person whose ever dealt with anything remotely "

Either first angle projection or third angle projection is a convention to place a view in the drawing sheet. But I have seen videos these conventions are violated. Are these conventions not mandatory?

Detached drawing has been a tool available in SolidWorks for many years. It allows drawings to be opened and used without the need to immediately load the associated model or assembly. The idea is that you can load a drawing much faster when you don't intend to make any changes to it.

The side views of the box are at an angle to the sides, resulting in dimensions being slightly different than what I would want to give to a machinist. Is there a way to add drawings of a flat view of the faces of the box? Use an Auxiliary view on the View Layout tab & select the edge of the face you want to view normal to.

One of my assembly drawings keeps getting disconnected from the assembly. When I open the assy, then click the feature tree to open the drawing associated with the assy, it pops up a box in the correct folder asking to choose a file. I choose it, save it, close it and when I reopen it and try to open the drawing it pops up the file dialog again.
