Request help for new balloon icon

Postby fjullien » Tue Mar 12, 2019 4:43 pm

Hi,

I created a new balloon command in TechDraw.

https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=34484

I did draw a new icon but it is far from perfect...

Anyone to give help here ?

Thanks in advance.

Franck.

Awesome !
Do you think it would be better with a "1" inside ?

And if you are kind enough you can prepare one without the circle but with an "A" like in the capture above.

I think I'll add this as a feature. Place a text with an arrow.

Thanks.

Maybe you just need one balloon command. If you give the property to change the balloon's radius to 0, you can use the arrow with any text block in techdraw.

What about this?

you can use the arrow with any text block in techdraw.
But then, the text will not move with the view.

So what would you prefer ? With or without "1" inside ?

I just tested how they both look in Freecad and I think it's better without "1" inside.

Ok. Here you are one with the letter A.

I guess that one with a letter is handy when adding notes with a leader on drawing. Don't know if that's part of merge ...
