I'm trying to figure out what the additional number in the balloon option "circular w/ 2 entities" represents.

HI jpblower,

 

By default this displays the Item number on top, then the QTY, but you can edit the balloon style to change which one displays on top, or to use different  iProperties.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis

Thanks.  Is there anyway to override the second number?  I can override the item number but nothing else.

Not an expert by any means but I did do this the other day.  Go into the BOM  and create a phantom part.  Yhen you can edit the balloon to use the phantom part data
