Window Label question

Recommended Posts

Are window labels in elevation and plan view able to show both the Call-out and the sizes?

 

Since using the schedule, only the call out appears.

 

Thanks in advance for any guidance. Much appreciated,  Val

Hi Val,

 

If you use the Schedule Callout it replaces the Text Label. 

 

It is possible to use a user text macro (Referenced Context) in a Text Box with a Leader Line to add the size and other attributes.  This can be done in conjunction with the Schedule Callout.

 

However, that only works in Plan View, not in an Elevation View.

 

One of my requests - for at least a couple of versions has been additional labels for elevations and sections.  IOW, one label for Plan Views and a secondary label for Elevations/Section Views.

yes, just uncheck or check these but you can't have it 2 ways for plans and elevations.

This is what mine looks like.  And no,  I cannot get a circle around the call-out number.  No macro required.

Thanks guys.

 

That's what I thought.

 

I have always used the sizes on elevations, and then add my own text callout for window number.

 

Guess that the dual call out for the plans and elevations will need to go in the suggestion box.

 

Much appreciated. All the best,  Val
