In 2011, does anyone know of a way to either edit an existing balloon style, or create a new symbol with the "Item" number from the BOM. I've created the graphic I need, but I can't seem to figure out how to add the Item number parameter. I need to create a basic balloon with some fixed text followed by the item number of the part!
Is this all the time or just for certain parts?
Did you try simply using the 2 entry balloon style with a custom iprop?
I do not believe Autodesk has exposed properties like that for use in sketched symbols yet.. Been a wishlist item for years but never implemented.
