Keywords auto complete

Top | Previous | Next


BOM keywords are used in BOM and drawing templates. It is important to enter the correct keyword combination; otherwise, the keyword will not generate the required information in the location specified by the user in the template. To ensure the correct keyword combination, Woodwork for Inventor offers Keyword Auto Complete functionality. This functionality allows the user to enter keywords with the possible combination only. Hovering the cursor over the proposed keyword shows more information about the functioning of the keyword.
