Material Issue Is this in a BOM? The way I've done something like this in the past is to add a Custom Property to my parts called BOM Material.

edit: To understand why you have to multiply by 1 (or add zero) I envisage it's a similar situation to having a Column in Excel formatted as text. The math operation forces the BOM to see a number Jive Software Version: 2018.7.0.1_jx, revision: 20180814200645.7fbf90c.release_18.7.0-jx

I have a main ASM1 that resides in a detached drawing. The detached drawing also contains, ASM2. ASM2 is a contrived asm that I created to show something. So, ASM2 doesn't reside in ASM1.

How do I add a balloon for a hidden component while making a stacked balloon? I have a Tyco connector and inside the connector are several Tyco pins and sockets. When I start a stacked balloon and select the the connector everything is fine however I can't figure out how to add the hidden pins/sockets to the stack.

I've done an exploded view and have a configuration in this assembly. I started adding balloons to the drawing and found the balloons register about 1/2" off the actual part. anyone else ever see this? Is there a fix for this?

I have an assembly that has one subassembly that will not call out the correct number from the BOM. The view is linked to the BOM and all the other parts are ballooned correctly. This subassembly is a rail system composed of 3 parts and it has 3 configurations (Fully Extended, Fully Retracted & Half Extended). In one view the slide is in the "Fully Retracted" configuration and a balloon will call out the correct BOM number.

Does anyone know what this toolbar is called? It pops up where ever I click every time I go to edit text in a drawing. Ideally I'd like to have it pinned to my command manager so that it opens in the same spot every time and not on top of the feature I'm editing.

I want to add a general table to a drawing with cells that reference custom properties that are in the part. Does anyone know how to do this? Why not just use a BOM?

As you can see, the measurements of certain parts of the Retaing Ring vary depending on the the variant (labelled PART NO) being manufactured and certain measurements are hard coded. For example, the angle between Smax and Smin is hard coded at 135 degrees but so is the clearance at .004. The question is .004 of what? The diagram itself does not indicate and the two accompanying tables only frustrate the matter.

We were most recently using SW2014 but have just upgraded. In past releases, you had the ability to put a box, triangle, circle, etc. around a portion of a note attached to a dimension. It doesn't seem that's possible in SW2017. In the picture below, the note under the dimension is part of that dimension, not an additional annotation.

So whenever you need to use the dual dimension in the property manager and you click on the radio button, it just stays closed. Is there a way to have it open after clicking on it? if you uncheck the box after checking it, it opens the drop down menu, which is just utterly frustrating.

I currently have a drawing that is in an ISO view. I would like to make a section view of a part in that assembly. I tried and it isn't working correctly. It shows parts that it shouldn't and it also shows exploded view lines.

I am using DraftSight 2017 x64 SP2. I have a part that is a cut-to-length piece of aluminum extrusion, for the sake of argument let say it has (1) flat edge. On the drawing for the extrusion profile, the extruder prefers to have the profile with the flat edge located horizontally across the bottom of the view. On the drawing for the cut part, the fabricator prefers to have a display of the profile with the flat edge located vertically along the left edge of the view with a side projected view
