I've finished working on an assembly, and am trying to create 2D drawings using TechDraw workbench. The first drawing was suppose to show the reader all of the components of an assembly. So how could I label all the components in an assembly in a way shown in a 2D attached drawing?
But there is a problem. I already have a ISO compatible spreadsheet in my TechDraw template and I would love to do this withouth inserting another spreadsheet... I need to use mine which is formatted the way I need it to be.
I edited my reply and added image of a TechDraw template which already has a large spreadsheet (Freecad editable). So I only need to mark parts with a numbers, so I can later manually write them down in my spreadsheet which is a part of template as can be seen from the attachment.
As it turns out baloons are only available on Freecad 0.19 and I am on Freecad 0.18 which is part of a Debian (Freecad doesn't provide .deb file of the latest release). Any other Idea? Could I somehow use a radius dimension with an "arbitrary" value like in the attached image (I also manualy inserted the value in my template spreadsheet)? This only works for a radius and not for lines...

You could do it the same ways I did: Add special symbols made in inkscape. I can provide my file in case you are interested. But I have to add that it is no fun at all and rather inflexible.
You should be able to run the Appimage instead, which includes these super duper balloons.
I stick to the distro packages. I avoid AppImages and Flatpaks which bring a lot of security issues. No baloons for me. I'll probably insert a custom symbols like sugested which is a big drawback as I have waited years (!) for Debian 10 which ships Freecad 0.18 with TechDraw, which I see now is a bit incomplete. So what? I wait another 5 years for Debian 11... Maybee I am just a bit too stubborn...
Don't panic guy 2 options
-1st : waited 5 years for Debian10
-2cd : bach for past and use V16 draw-dimensioning whiyh Welder symbol addon.
I don't know why the conceptor of the new vertion from Fc lost the olds tools whithout new to replace
