Displays options for editing annotations.
Cancels any changes, exits the Annotation Editor, and returns to the 3D environment.
Saves the annotation changes to the database. This command does not write any changes to geometry to the database. Only the annotation objects are persisted.
Displays the Annotation ribbon. For more information, see Annotation Ribbon.
Displays the Part Editor Object Attribute Manager dialog box. If you have selected a 2D object, then the dialog box displays the attributes of that object. If you have not selected a 2D object, the dialog box displays general part attributes. If you have selected more than one 2D object, the dialog box does not display. For more information, see Part Editor Object Attribute Manager Dialog Box.
Layers and Styles
Displays the Style dialog box. For more information, see Style Dialog Box.
Displays the original XML file for the part. If the output format is set to annotation, then the annotation XML objects are included.
Changes to the part are not visible in the XML file viewer for that part until the changes are persisted to the database and the part is reloaded.
You can control the size of the selected annotation by using the <PART_EDITOR_CONTROL> in the SMS_Annotation.xml file.
Reduces the size of the annotation. The available sizes are controlled through the SMS_ANNOTATION.xml file.
Enlarges the size of the annotation. The available sizes are controlled through the SMS_ANNOTATION.xml file.
Select a size for the annotation from the list. The available sizes are controlled through the SMS_ANNOTATION.xml file. The values depend on the type of object that you have selected to edit. For example, if you have selected a plate part, the list contains those values specified for plates.
Rotates the selected annotation. The software prompts you to select a rotation axis point, a rotation starting point, and a rotation end point. The rotation end point is not needed if you select a value in the Select Rotation Angle box.
Select Rotation Angle
Select a rotation angle for the annotation. The available angles are controlled through the SMS_ANNOTATION.xml file. If you select a value in this box, the software uses that angle to compute the rotation end point.
Select the annotation type to place. The list contains the annotation types included in the SMS_ANNOTATION.xml file using the attribute name <TYPE> and <DISPLAY_NAME>.
