Comments To Myself

Comments To Myself are special text and lines for your own reference.  For example you might use Comments To Myself to note a part number of a machine screw or the location of a mating part.

To add Comments To Myself:
  1. Draw the lines or draw text with the text tool.
  2. Choose Line | Machine | Comments to Myself.
  3. Select a Line Type (Solid, Dashed, Font, Arrow or Dimension).
  4. Click OK.

You can use Comments To Myself to show how other parts will fit onto the the part you are designing or to sketch out a mechanism. Below is an example of a base for a mechanism along with various gray lines set as Comments To Myself. The drawing illustrates an invaluable method of checking how parts fit and work together.
