Appearance Callouts

Appearance callouts display the appearance of the component (assemblies only), face, feature, body, and part under the item selected and are a shortcut to editing appearances.


To display appearance callouts:

  1. Right-click a model or an entity in the Feature Manager design tree to display the context toolbar.


  2. Click Appearances edit_appearance_tab.gif.

    To edit an appearance, click a blank or square to the right of an entity in the appearance callout and use the Appearances PropertyManager.
