GD&T on a note

WF3
I put all of my GD&T callouts in the .prt as annotation features.
I created a hole with the wizard.
How am I supposed to attach the tolerance callout to the "Note"?

yeah, this is what I ended up doing. didn't like it at all. especially irritating because if you end up moving the view to a new location you have to regenerate before the grouped items move. made a big mess of a few drawings before I figured this out.


Interesting... will have to check this out. will it attach to the note goofy? like break the note up to put the tolerance just to that dim?


I've had really bad luck with creating dimensions as annotation features in the model. Don't exactly remember what it was, except something about the text size going goofy and the dual dimensions broke down.

I've had pretty good luck with this one, nothing strange, just puts it under/over (depends on setting) the dim. Remember, the selected (e.g., diameter) "dim" actually contains all the other parameter and dimension info. Most of this is entered on the "Text" page.
