Annotation lines

LucyDLucyD Posts: 11
I have found some discussions, but please can you clarify - 
I want to move the annotation to stay with the grain line in a place in the piece.
Do I Create an extra line in the pattern in PDS, then edit line info and put A in the Label box?
Will this make the pattern annotation stay where the line is?

    There you can set place of annotation graineLine or center of piece in P-Marker(piece)-Plot. And only in case the graine line position isn't good for you then you have create A or B line.

    In P-Piece-Plot, the option Piece Annotation can choose between Grain and Center.
    In P-Marker-Plot, Annotation section, the option Piece can choose between None, All Center, and All Grain.

    Internal line with either Label A or Label B is an extra options. Once you have a Label A/B on a piece, it overrides what was chosen in the parameter.
    You can also use multiples A/B lines... sometimes I cheat the cutter with internal cut lines and need the piece annotation appears multiple times on a piece, so the bundler don't throw the piece away.
