Data tag - Tag symbols within symbols


Recommended Posts



As far as I am aware through trial and error I have found it is not possible to attach Data tags to Symbols holding custom record data within a Symbol from the Sheet layer Viewports annotations. 


Is their a way to do this that i'm just not aware of? So far i have not found a solution, this tool has allot of potential i would have assumed that this would be possible already.


Please see example file attached.


Thank you

You can do it fine on individual symbols. What you appear to be trying to do is attach a data tag to a symbol with a record that is already within a symbol. That won't work I'm afraid. Data tags won't see through container objects like groups or symbols. However you can attach a record to a group or container symbol and then it should all work fine.
