#1 Showing bubbles for parts in layout/project

Is there a way to show bubbles on sheets that point to parts that referance the BOM parts that have already been assigned, I know i have been able to do this is other software but dont see an option for it here. 

thank you 

In a future version.

Thanks for posting on the forum.

We are currently working on automating such a process.  Beside a panel layout on a sheet, it will be possible to display a BOM specific to the panel, and have SkyCAD auto-generate item bubbles around the panel layout.  But this is planned for later this year.

Until then, you have to use the generic BOM and place item bubbles manually. 

Update

Is'it possible in 2023 ?

Made progress, but we're not there yet

This is now possible with the introduction of Location BOMs.

We've made some progress (ability to add an item # column in BOMs, which self-populates) in that regard, but we're not at the end result yet.
