Notes Table
The Notes table displays the notes associated with a part or part structure.
If a part has a structural relationship with lower-level parts, those parts appear in the Notes table in the order in which they were added. You can add notes to any part in the table.
When you add notes to lower-level parts, those notes do not appear in the Notes table for that particular part. If you want the note to also be viewable from the information page of that lower-level part, you must add it separately. For more information, see Viewing the Notes for a BOM.
To access the Notes table, navigate to the information page of a part.
Create a new tab and select Customize > Related Objects > Notes
From the Structure tab, select Add Related Information > Manage Notes from the right-click actions menu in the part structure tree.
If the Notes table has not been added, then a new tab is automatically created with the Notes table displayed.
Table Views and Columns
You can limit the information that appears in the Notes table using the following views:
Select Name and Number to display the part name, number, and note text. This view does not include version or organizational identification information.
Select Full view to include the version and organizational identification information.
You can also add attributes to the table by creating a custom view. For more information about creating custom table views, hiding or adding columns, and setting column spacing, see Personalizing Tables and Table Views.
The attribute columns in the Notes table provide basic information about the parts and notes displayed. Often, table columns correspond to the attributes of the object. For more information, see Object Attributes.
Some attributes, including the Share Status and General Status indicators, do not appear for lower-level parts within the table.
Share Status
If an icon appears, this indicates that the part or note has been shared to a project. For more information, see Object Status.
General Status
An icon appears if the part or note is checked out by you or another user. For more information, see Object Status.
Find Number
An optional attribute used to cross-reference a part in a product structure with the same part in an assembly drawing.
Note Text
Displays the content of the note.
How much of the content appears is determined by the Display > Display length of Note Text in Information Page preference. For information on setting this preference, see Modifying Your User Preferences.
Actions are available from the table toolbar, as icons in table columns, and from the right-click actions menu in the table rows.
For information on the actions available from the right-click actions menu, see Common Actions.
The availability of some actions might depend on the status of the object and your user access.
