Another boring Callout Discussion: Automatic Populate

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why the "Text Below Line" in a callout automatically populates correctly when sent to almost all layouts, but doesn't when using a different layout? I'm using a different size page than I typically do, and no more automatic population!

I don't think it can be referenced to more than one layout at a time. Is it possible that the plan has been referenced to more than one layout?

Nope. Only one layout. I only opened the other one as a test to see if the link was broken. But thanks!

      I'm sure this is simple, but I can't figure it out.  I'm new to Chief Architect...
      How do I get the callout labels to be smaller, like 1/2 the size they are showing on the image I have attached?  I am referring to the appliance and cabinet callouts.  I can't figure out where those text sizes are controlled. 
      I appreciate all the help!

      Hello All...
      I get double callouts in my floor plan for the electrical symbols.

      Here is my schedule dbx.

      I'm at "wits end" trying to figure out how to only show the schedule number in plan, circle callout,  and hide the symbol number, oblong callout.

      Is this normal for a section callout.  
      When a live view of the section is created...the arrow fill disappears.  Is there a setting that will keep this arrow filled no matter...
      See the attached pic.

      Is there a way to have the section line style be "dashed"...but the callout circle to be a solid line.  The attached picture shows what I'd like to achieve...
      Can this be done thru some sort of setup...or will I have to use a cad line to connect to the callout?

      What does the "Angle" setting under Size/Orientation in the Callout Specification box do? As far as I can tell, it does nothing.
