About Annotations in Difference Reports
You can generate a report of differences between Annotation features and Annotation Elements in two versions of the same model or drawing. This report describes the differences between the features of the two compared models or drawings, including the differences between Annotation features and differences between Annotation Elements. Models or drawings being compared can have the same or different names.
For User Defined Features and features that are a part of a group, the report displays the group name or the User Defined Feature name with the actual feature in parentheses in the Item Name column. This enables you to sort the report for similar grouped features by group name and UDF name. For example, Group_ABD(AE_1) whereGroup_ABD is the group name and theAE_1 is the actual feature.
Creo Parametric generates a difference report by comparing the two versions in the following manner (only the differences are reported).
