Leader Lines Text

Recommended Posts

I can get Leader Lines to display annotation or length of a line or area of a face, but:

 

is it possible for Leader Lines to display part name (automatically without typing it in)? Maybe this is possible in Layout but I am hoping it is possible directly in a FormZ Pro 8.5 model?

Hi Alan,

 

Yes, Leaders will automatically show Length of Lines or Area of Faces when annotating those parts, but (at least currently) there is not an option to automatically load the name of the object being referenced.  Is this something that would be useful to others for the future?

Tech, it would be great if we could place a load of leaderlines, then select them all and right click to choose an option 'apply object name', so the names are applied to the selection all at once, and may afterwards be individually edited if required.

Yes, sure, it would be very useful. The dual system of objects and layers it's a great tool in formZ and I support any improvements that make it more robust.  ;)
