    Is there a macro, or a way to create a macro, to call out window dimensions in plan view from inches only to 0'-0" without having to edit the window label?

    Ok I figured out what I wanted to accomplish for my window schedule using solvers hw.txt. 1. Open CA-X11 with a new plan, then opened Text Macro Management-copied then paste solvers hw.txt. (Make sure to click on evaluate and owners object in Context) 2. Open default settings, then open window default, open label, clicked specify label on "labels Options". 3. insert macros %schedule_number% %window_label% %type_code% press ok and done to close the default settings. I turned off the callout label in the window schedule specification box. I hope this helps.

    Thank you Solver for the video and the *.jsn file. I did import the X11 label window file. I attached three files. One to show what happened when I used a window schedule, one without the window schedule. I did remove the default window label from the "window Specification". Is there a way to have the window callout shown in the "right window calllout JPG", (the far right window)? Again, Thank you for all your help.

    I tried the windowlabel.txt with my C.A. X11 and had no success. Thanks to all who gave in put on this problem. And I agree RobDyck, something like this should come out-of-box friendly user available. coming over from Autocad to Chief, I always used foot-inch in my window callouts, that is how I was taught years ago. And unfortunately, the last few plans I have drawn using C.A X11 and using the window schedule label (symbol) showing the label and not the actual window dimension,the city planners have kicked back my drawings wanting to see the window callouts and not a label(symbol). Maybe it's LAZINESS on their end. Thank you Alaskan_Son for offering your service. For now I will continue researching the ruby program and see if can figure it out, if ruby is what Is used to create a program.
