Assembly Drawing, BOM, Baloon numbers

We are using Repeat Regines for BOM and love them.

One serious problem we can not solve yet, how to stabilaze baloons numbers.

After design is accomplished and drawings are released, we need to keep existing baloon numbers always the same (freeze) independent of that fact that new components may be added later.

Otherwise it is difficult to communicate with receipients of drawings, who have original documentation.

Thanks in advans for sharing your thoughts.

You can fix BOM table item numbers:

Table > Repeat region > Fix index - pick region & select item to fix.

This will keep the item no. constant..
