Attach it with a leader to the balloon or part, and then rmb on it and delete leader.
Not sure about qty. When making the sketched symbol look through the options in when
placing a property field, but the quick look I took I didn't see anything. Also if there
is a way I am going to guess you would need to attach to the part and not the balloon.

> Can you attach text (qty or other info) to the side of a baloon or a point on the model
view? If so can the qty update automatically?
I dont understand the delete portion of your answer... May be after so many years.. this solution inst applicable.
Or may be there is a different way to attach text to a baloon. I need text to move with baloon to move with view.
I now baloon will, but the text stays

If you place your symbol in the view 1st then move the symbol to the balloon it will stay with the view..
I have been asking for balloon attach points from Inventor4 and look we still don't have it but yet we have a crappy Interface
