Parts List with Dynamic Callouts on Drawings

Parts List with Dynamic Callouts on Drawings

I am creating a parts list manual with exploded diagrams and other mechanical drawings. The parts are in numbered lists. I am trying to have the callouts on the parts in the drawings be associated with the corresponding number in the list. So that way if I need to update the list and insert/remove a part in the middle of the list then the associated numbers in the drawings change automatically.

We can do this in iLeaf using autonumbers and autoreference but I cannot see where this can be done in Framemaker. We are presently in the process of moving away from iLeaf over to Framemaker and this is one challenge I have found. We have large lists and drawings and having to manually move callouts is something we need to avoid if possible.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
