NX X Creating a balloon without stub

NX for Design



Is is possible to create a balloon (ID Symbol) without a stub on the leader?


When creating or editing ID balloons, a user may want to eliminate the stub. There are two ways to do this and they have differing attachment results.

Without Stub results:

o Access the Balloon dialog
o In the upper left corner of the dialog select the Option icon next to the
   balloon dialog title
o Select "Balloon (More)" to insure that all dialog options are displayed
o Expand the Leader panel
o Set Type = "Without Stub"
   - Notice at this point that the Stub Side option is removed in the Style panel
o Create your balloon
   - The leader will now always be directed through the CENTER of the balloon regardless of the origin

Zero Length Stub:

o Access the Balloon dialog
o Set Type = "Plain"
o Stub Side = "Inferred" in Style panel
o Set Stub Length = 0.0
o Locating the ID balloon with these settings results in the leader attaching to either side of the balloon
