Detail Bubble Tool

Recommended Posts

The Detail Bubble Tool in the Dims/Notes tool set has several bubble styles and can auto populate Parts List and Bill of Materials worksheets.

Is there a way to make the worksheet item number (or some new column) show the bubble number inside its surrounding bubble shape? ie a 2 inside a hexagon to match the similar graphic on the drawing?

Or is there some other tool used to display key legends with these different bubbles in the item number column?

Sort of, but that seems to always show the bubble with the leader/arrow, and the item number is rotated. Adjusting rotation in Format Cells causes the leader to rotate in the cell, but the number never orients properly. That's a lot of clicks for each cell, and it doesn't complete the task.

I was planning to have several legends each displaying info for a separate shape of bubble. This can't be too uncommon. I could draw a poly around each number?
