Annotation Views - Inserting Automatically

You can insert annotation views automatically or manually.

To automatically create annotation views:

  1. In a part or assembly, right-click the Annotations folder FM_annotations.gif.
  2. Select Automatically Place into Annotation Views.

Each time you insert an annotation, it is added to an existing annotation view, or a new one is created.

If you insert a 3D annotation to sheet metal part, a Flat pattern annotation view is automatically created.
